The tent is one of many targeted structures in the area. The occupation targets Al-Halawah and others for the sake of emptying the area and using it for colonial expansionist plans. Not only, the occupation is working on limiting down the demographic expansion of Palestinians on the claim of "unlicensed construction" to take more lands over.
