Noteworthy, Italian Cooperation gifted three clinics to three Palestinian hamlets namely (Safi, Al-Majaz and Al-Mirkiz). The clinics were supposed to contract with a doctor, a laboratory expert and nurse to work one day each clinic over the week.

The targeted clinics were also supposed to join two clinics established by Ministry of Health in Jinba and Al-Fakhit hamlets in order to meet people's needs.

It is reported that Israeli occupation authorities notified Jinba's clinic of demolition three years ago. Also, the occupation threatened the clinics of Al-Majaz and Safi of stop-work and demolition.  Reportedly, the clinics are 30-36 m2 in area.

It should be also noted that Israeli occupation authorities are targeting the residences and structures of Masafer Yatta communities via stop-work and demolition order for the sake of displacing people and taking over their lands for the favor of colonial expansion reasons.
