According to the order, the Israeli authorities claimed Maswadi owns the land 'illegally' and thus is ordered to return it to its previous status within 45 days, starting from the day of receiving the order.  In case Maswadi did not comply, the authorities would carry out the eviction and fine him the costs.

The camp was built  30 years ago on a 30-dunum piece of land that belongs to al-Nazer family from Hebron. Drawing from previous eviction operations on Hebron lands, it should be marked that the Israeli occupation authorities mean by carrying out the eviction that the bulldozers will ravage land, destroy all structures on it, smash water cisterns, uproot trees and seedlings and then confiscate it.
