On 3 June 2020, after demolishing seven homes and several other structures in Palestinian communities throughout the Jordan Valley and the South Hebron Hills, Civil Administration personnel arrived with an escort of Border Police officers, military jeeps, a bulldozer and a digger at the community of Khirbet al-Markez in Masafer Yatta. The force demolished six homes built with EU financial aid, leaving 35 people, 25 of them minors, homeless. The demolitions are but another step in a long saga of of harassment by Israeli authorities, adopted in an effort to drive Palestinians out of their homes and the area.
