The Israeli military on Thursday notified seven Palestinian families in the south of the West Bank that their homes will be demolished, according to a local activist.

Rateb Jabour, an activist with the anti-settlement committees, was quoted by WAFA news agency as stating that the military informed seven residents of the village of Maeen, east of Yatta, of its decision to demolish their homes, which cover an area of 130 to 160 square meters each.

Dozens of other village homes have already been demolished under the same pretext of construction without a permit.

Maeen is located in what is classified as Area C of the occupied West Bank, which is under full Israeli military control preserved for its settlement activities and where its Palestinian residents are not allowed to build or develop.
