A final demolition order on a residence in the Hebron town of Yatta


Violation: serving a final demolition order on a house

Location:  Al-Deirat village-Yatta

Date: 29/06/2015

Perpetrators:  Israel Civil Administration and army

Victims:  Citizen Salah Mohammad


The Israeli occupation authorities on June 29, 2015 served a final demolition order on the residence of Citizen Salah Mohammad from Al-Deirat village, east Yatta town.

It should be marked that Israel Civil Administration raided the area and hanged the order on the structure before the force had left the place.

The military order mentioned that the house lacks a building permit and compelled a halt on all of the construction works and the demolition of what has been so far built within a seven day deadline, starting from the order’s date of issuance.

The Israeli occupation authorities on April 13, 2015 served a stop-work and construction order on Salah’s house. April 29, 2015 was set as the hearing session for the Planning and Construction Committee in the Israeli court of Beit El to consider whether to demolish the structure or restore its previous status.

The father of the house owner asserted that his son embarked on preparing the needed legal file to obtain a license and object to the order. Mohammad couldn’t get some papers due to the Civil Administration hindrance, which resulted in the file being incomplete; the house got demolished as a result.

The targeted house (100m2) is still under construction and is planned to be a home for Mohammad’s five member family including 3 children.
