Israeli to displace 1,300 Palestinians

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Israeli authorities are forcefully removing 1,300 Palestinian villagers from the area, which has now been classed a "closed military zone", while the Jewish settlers are allowed to remain in the area. 

The Israeli authorities have begun moves to evacuate about 1,300 Palestinians from eight Palestinians villages in south of Hebron in the occupied West Bank on the pretext that 'they occupy a firing range in military training area'.

The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, reported on Thursday that the 'state' wanted to evict the Palestinians from their homes because it wanted to save the Israel army time and money.

Earlier this year, in January, Palestinians from 12 villages in the area filed two petitions in the Supreme Court. They called for the cancelation of the planned measures and the military order that considered the area a 'closed military zone.'
