Israeli forces Wednesday morning dismantled 11 residential structures in the Bedouin community of al-Qabbun, northeast of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to media sources.
Fares Ka‘abneh, a media activist, told WAFA news agency that a sizable Israeli military unit escorted lift lorries to the community, located near the village of al-Mughayyer, demolished 11 residential structures and seized their contents.
The soldiers also seized tractors, water tankers and solar power units.
The Israeli occupation authorities have been targeting the Bedouin communities, north and east of Ramallah, for decades in order to displace them and make room for colonial settlement construction that separate the Jordan Valley from the West Bank.
