Israeli army demolished on Wednesday morning four Palestinian residential shelters in Shaab al-Batm hamlet in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank, resulting in the displacement of 40 people.
Local activist Fouad al-Imour told WAFA news agency that the four shelters were built of brick and tin sheets and dwelled by four families.
The demolition, he explained, was carried out to make room for the expansion of the illegal Israeli colony of Avigal.
