Israeli forces demolished two houses near Yatta on Thursday, in the southern occupied West Bank, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.
Rateb Jabour, from the anti-wall, anti-settlements popular committees in the south of the West Bank, told WAFA that Israeli bulldozers demolished two Palestinian-owned houses in the village of Lesfayier, southeast of Yatta, under the pretext that they were built without a permit.
Jabour added that the two houses are inhabited by more than 10 people; the lands on which the houses were built are close to the illegal Jewish settlement of Beit Yatir.
According to the human rights group B’tselem, “over the years, Israel has demolished hundreds of houses as part of this policy, leaving thousands of Palestinians homeless”.
