HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces raided a Palestinian home in the southern occupied West Bank village of Khursa on Thursday morning, expelling its residents and setting up a temporary military post there.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers raided Khalid al-Shahatit’s home and forced out his family, informing them that they would occupy the house until 4 p.m.

The troops also hung an Israeli flag outside of the building.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports. Israeli forces used Palestinian homes as temporary military outposts in a number of instances in 2016.

Although the common factor in each of the cases was the proximity of the Palestinian homes to illegal Israeli settlements, Khursa is not located near either settlements nor military bases, according to the Applied Research Institute - Jerusalem (ARIJ).
