On August 26, 2012, the Israeli Occupation Civil Administration handed Ismael Udra a stop-work order for his residence located in Ad Deirat, eastern Yatta.

The order also set September 29, 2012, as the date of a the hearing session to be held in Beit El Military Court to decide on the fate of the house.



The targeted residence is a two-storey building with a total area of 280 m2. The first storey is used to store grains while the second is used as a residence inhabited by the 16-member-family. Jibreel also pointed that his brother built the first storey in 1988 while the second was built in 2003.

It must be pointed that ad Deirat have been targeted a lot recently by plowing lands, uprooting trees, and numerous demolition threats for various structures.
