Yesterday, 2 May 2018, at 7:30 A.M., two Civil Administration jeeps accompanied by dozens of soldiers and two bulldozers, arrived at four neighboring communities in the Masafer Yatta area in the South Hebron Hills: Khirbet Jenbah, Khirbet al-Markez, Khirbet al-Halawah and Khirbet al-Fakhit. The forces destroyed six dwellings, five of them currently occupied and one seasonal, leaving at least 26 residents, including eight minors, homeless.
