Israeli forces demolish Palestinian structure in Yatta

July 30, 2018 12:45 P.M. (Updated: July 30, 2018 5:03 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished a steel structure used for housing sheep on Monday east of Yatta City in the southern West bank district of Hebron.

Locals said that an Israeli bulldozers escorted by soldiers demolished the structure, in the Tuba area east of Yatta, under the pretext of being built without the nearly impossible-to-obtain Israeli building permit.

Sources added that the demolished structure belonged to Ismail Elayyan and that he had not received a prior notice regarding the demolition.

The demolished structure provides economic lifelines to many Palestinian families; the damages have yet to be counted.

In Area C, the more than 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli security and civilian control, Palestinian construction and land management is prohibited unless through consent or authorization by the Israeli Civil Administration.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.
