Israel Issues Demolition Orders for 8 Palestinian Villages
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday ordered the demolition of 8 Palestinian villages in the hills south of Hebron because the Israeli military needs the land for training exercises, Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported.
A total of 1,500 residents will be evicted from their homes and have their lands confiscated in the villages of Majaz, Tabban, Sfai, Fakheit, Halaweh, Mirkez, Jinba, and Kharuba. The villages of Tuba, Mufaqara, Sarura, and Megheir al-Abeid, which are also nearby, appear to have been spared.
