Israeli occupation forces issued on Wednesday demolition orders against four Palestinian houses in AlKhalil towns of Bani Na'im and al-Ramadin, according to local sources.
The sources told WAFA news agency that Israeli forces raided Bani Na'im town, east of AlKhalil, where they took photos and measurements of slain Palestinian Mohammad Naser Tarayra as a prelude to punitively demolish it.
Israeli military demolished the internal walls of the first floor of Tarayra's house back in August 2016.
Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers barged their way into al-Ramadin village, southwest of AlKhalil, where they handed three residents military orders to demolish their houses.
Israel systematically demolishes Palestinian family homes of any Palestinians accused of being involved in attacks against Israelis, a policy that Israel does not use against Israeli settlers who are involved in fatal attacks against Palestinians.
This policy is widely condemned by human rights organizations as “collective punishment” and “a war crime and a crime against humanity”.
