Israel to Remove Palestinians’ Tents in Area C near Nablus

NABLUS, June 1, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities Monday notified local residents of Khirbet at-Tawil, south of Nablus, to remove tents that shelter their families, according to a local source.

A local activist told WAFA that an Israeli army force stormed the village and handed eviction orders to local residents of Khirbet at-Tawil, which is a frequent target for Israeli violations.

The Israeli violations include property demolition, collective relocations and Israeli military drills. Israeli forces have delivered many demolition and eviction orders to local residents of the village.

On May 3, the Israeli army conducted military drills using live ammunition near the village, damaging hundreds of dunums of Palestinian-owned land.

According to a local study, Israeli forces aim in reality to “displace the hundreds of citizens living in Khirbet al- Tawil under the pretext that the village is located within Area C and is situated within an Israeli military zone used for the training of the Israeli army.”
