Israel demolishes Bedouin steel structures near Ramallah

Aug. 20, 2014 1:12 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 22, 2014 3:18 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished steel structures belonging to the Palestinian Bedouin community east of Ramallah on Wednesday, locals said.

Israeli forces destroyed four steel structures, usually used for housing, near the village of al-Taybeh and another three structures in Mikhmas village.

The structures belonged to Yousef Mousa Ahmad Kaabneh and Moussa Yousef Kaabneh.

In Mikhmas, Israeli forces raided the community and evacuated residents before demolishing the structures.

Israeli soldiers prevented journalists from reaching the area during the demolition.

The Bedouin community resettled to areas of what are now the southern and eastern occupied West Bank after being expelled from the Negev during the creation of the Israeli state.
