Villagers watch as Israel destroys homes in two south Hebron hills villages

On November 6th the Israeli army demolished one house and a stumble
in the Palestinian village of Derath; afterward it demolished a house
and a water cistern in the Palestinian village of Jawaya, South Hebron
Hills, West Bank.
Around 6.45 am three DCO (District Coordination Office) cars, two
demolition machines and one bulldozer broke in Derath village escorted
by four Border Police jeeps and one army vehicle. First it was
demolished a two floors house still under construction owned by Mohammad
Musa Mohammad Abu Aram, then they moved to demolish a metal sheep's
At about 9 am the vehicles proceeded to Jawaya village, demolished a
house and destroyed a water cistern, used to collect rain water; both
owned by Mahmud Ahmed Nasser Nawaja. In the South Hebron Hills area
water supply is particularly critical. According to the owner, in 2011
the DCO delivered only a stop working order for those two structures.

The two Palestinian villages are located in Area C, under Israeli
military and civil administration. According to OCHA oPt (UN Office for
the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in occupied Palestinian
territory) construction is prohibited for Palestinians in some 70% of
Area C, while in the remaining 30%, a range of restrictions eliminate
the possibility of obtaining a building permit.
The policies enforced by the Israeli authorities in Area C restrict
the possibility to access to basic needs for the residents and prevent
environment and development of Palestinian communities. An OCHA Opt
research shows that in some communities families are being forced to
move as a result of Israeli policies applied in Area C
