The Israeli army raided, on Tuesday, a school in the village of Khillat al-Dabe, in Masafer Yatta, southern occupied West Bank, and informed the head of the Twanneh village council, Muhammad Ribee, that it will be removed.

Ribee told WAFA that the soldiers also informed a local resident that the three rooms he uses as shelter for his family will also be demolished, under the pretext they were built without permit.

The school was built of mobile homes to accommodate students from the area.

Israel does not allow Palestinian construction in Masafer Yatta, under the pretext the area is under full Israeli military rule and any construction should be first approved by the military government, which rarely, if ever, grants permission to Palestinians, anyway.
