Israel is Demolishing Palestinian Villages for a Firing Zone
Israeli forces are in the midst of major demolition of Palestinian homes and infrastructure in the southern part of the occupied West Bank that is going largely unreported. The demolition project of numerous villages in the Palestinian region of Masafar Yatta is considered the largest forced expulsion of native Palestinian people from their homes in 55 years. Farmers have been attacked and imprisoned, and schools are being destroyed.
The demolition takes place months after Israel’s Supreme Court ruled that the area inhabited by about 1,200 Palestinians can be bulldozed to make way for an Israeli military training ground.
