Israeli forces confiscate construction equipment in Yatta

Aug. 25, 2018 4:23 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 27, 2018 3:56 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces confiscated construction equipment, on Saturday, from a Palestinian home in the Masafer Yatta village, in Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.

Rateb al-Jbour, coordinator of the National and Popular Committee in southern Hebron, said that Israeli forces raided the al-Qawaqis area in Masafer Yatta and confiscated construction equipment, belonging to Palestinian resident, Jibril Moussa Abu Aaram.

Al-Jbour added that Israeli forces also photographed the home of Youssef Ayoub Abu Aaram for unknown reasons.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers assaulted a number of Israeli pro-Palestine solidarity activists in the same area.

Around 3,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal Jewish-only settlements in the Yatta region, according to the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.

The South Hebron Hills, known locally as Masafer Yatta, lie almost entirely in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Masafer Yatta residents were expelled at the time of the establishment of a firing zone in the 1970s and were eventually allowed back following a long court battle, but are under the constant threat of being expelled or seeing their homes demolished.
