Israeli forces confiscate tent near Yatta City

Sept. 4, 2018 12:42 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 4, 2018 2:45 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces confiscated a Palestinian-owned residential tent, in the Quweis area east of Yatta City in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, on Tuesday morning.

Local sources said that Israeli forces stormed the area and confiscated the residential tent without having given a prior notice.

Sources added that the tent belongs to Palestinian, Youssef Ayoub Abu Aram, who lived in the tent along with his family.

Reasons for the confiscation remained unknown.

In Area C, under which Yatta City lies, 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.

The South Hebron Hills, known locally as Masafer Yatta, lie almost entirely in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Masafer Yatta residents were expelled at the time of the establishment of a firing zone in the 1970s and were eventually allowed back following a long court battle, but are under the constant threat of being expelled or seeing their homes demolished.
