In its drive to demolish Masafer Yatta villages, the Israeli military destroys two agricultural rooms – HEBRON, Tuesday, May 24, 2022 (WAFA)

The Israeli military today demolished two agricultural rooms in two different villages in Masafer Yatta in what is believed to be another demolition on the road to tear down 12 Masafer Yatta villages and displace over 1000 of their Palestinian residents.

The Israeli High Court on May 4 gave the army the green light to demolish the 12 villages and displace their residents after the army declared the area as a firing zone. Since then, the Israeli military has gradually demolished several homes and rooms in different villages to avoid being criticized if it carries the demolitions at one time.

Palestinian activist Fouad al-Amour told WAFA that the army accompanied by heavy machinery broke into al-Tawaneh and al-Jawaya villages where they demolished the two rooms owned by local residents.
