The Israeli army removed, Wednesday, four residential tents in Masafer Yatta in the southern occupied West Bank, claiming they were set up without army authorization, according to a local activist.

Rateb Jabour, an activist with the anti-wall, anti-settlements committee, told WAFA that soldiers removed three tents for three brothers in Khillet al-Dabe village and a fourth in Maghayer al-Abeed, both in the Masafer Yatta region, Hebron Governorate.

Jabour said the army had previously demolished shacks used as homes for the three brothers, which forced them to set up tents to sleep in.

Masafer Yatta is located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli military rule and Palestinians are not allowed to utilize this land that makes up more than 60% of the area of the occupied West Bank.
