Confiscations and demolitions in the South Hebron Hills; Family of seven left homeless for the second time in two months
On Tuesday, 11 August 2020, at around 7:00 A.M, Civil Administration personnel came with an escort of Border Police jeeps, a crane truck and a digger to Khirbet Susiya in the South Hebron Hills. The forces demolished a tent used for agricultural purposes owned by a resident and confiscated a small cement mixer and a cart intended for building a structure. The forces then continued to the area of Masafer Yatta, where they first went to Khirbet al-Mufaqarah. Upon the forces' arrival, the residents dismantled the tent they had erected a week earlier. From there, the forces continued to the community of Maghayir al-‘Abid, where they demolished a tent that served as a livestock pen. Then, they continued south to Khirbet al-Fakhit and demolished a residential tent, leaving seven people, three of them minors, homeless. The tent was donated by the EU after the CA had demolished the same family’s tent two months earlier.
