Israeli Occupation Forces demolished on March 22, 2016 a residence and agricultural structure and confiscated solar panels belonging to citizen Shaher Mohammad from the Yatta hamlet of Jinba, south Hebron governorate.

The wife of the affected citizen said that a massive force from Israel Civil Administration and two dozers raided the hamlet at 9:00 in the morning, deployed soldiers around the targeted house and embarked on demolishing the structure. Noteworthy, the owners managed to evacuate some of the interior.

The demolition reached out a 32m2 residence that is built by metal slaps to be home for the citizen's eight member family including six children. Also, a 12m2 kitchen was brought down during the operation. Noteworthy, both structures were built in 2015.

Not only, the Israeli Occupation Forces demolished a 24m2 tent that was used as fodder warehouse and a 150m2 sheep barrack, sheltering 100 sheep.

As part of the operation, the force confiscated solar panels used  to generate electricity for the citizen in addition to eight storage batteries.

It should be marked that Israeli occupation authorities served stop-work orders on the structures long ago. It is when the affected owner sought an attorney to object to the order. According to an eyewitness, the occupation confiscated two tents (not set up)  from the demolition location.
