Israeli forces confiscate road roller, excavator in Yatta

Feb. 21, 2019 3:31 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 21, 2019 3:31 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces confiscated a Palestinian-owned road roller and an excavator, on Wednesday evening, from eastern Yatta in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Rateb al-Jbour, coordinator of the National and Popular Committee in southern Hebron, that the two vehicles belong to resident Mahfouz Rashid.

Around 3,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal Jewish-only settlements in the Yatta region, according to the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.

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
