Israeli Forces Seize, Turn Two Hebron Town Houses into Military Outposts

HEBRON, October 7, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday seized and turned two Palestinian houses into military outposts in Halhul town, north of Hebron, said security and municipal sources.


Israeli forces and so-called “Civil Administration” officers broke into the Halhul locality of al-Hawawer, adjacent to a military camp and the Israeli settlement of Karmi Zur, where they seized and turned a house belonging to Fathi Mer‘ib, a Palestinian expatriate in the US.


Head of Halhul Local Council Wajdi Melhem told WAFA Israeli soldiers broke into the house and forced Mer‘ib’s nephew, Nidal Karja, and his family, out of the house.


Nidal was handed an order notifying him of the Israeli forces’ plan to seize the house for military purposes.


Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers broke into and turned another house, located between Nuba and Halhul towns, into a military outpost. Municipal sources from Halhul told WAFA that forces broke into the empty house, which belongs to ‘Abdul-Qader al-Sa‘da, and raised the Israeli flag on the rooftop.
