  • Violation: opening an Israeli road
  • Location:  Far'a area- Hebron governorate
  • Date: February 2017
  • Perpetrators: Israeli Occupation Forces
  • Victims:  citizens from Hijjeh and Khamaysa families


On February 2017, Israeli Occupation Forces embarked on opening a new colonial road on lands from Far'a area, west Taffuh town  in order to connect the Israel stone crusher founded in the area to the bypass road number 35. Noteworthy, the stone crusher is called Ben Ari.

Noteworthy, the road that is still under construction travels by the residential community of Al-Azazmeh clan and some lands belonging to Hijjeh and Khamaysa families.

The road project intends to shorten the distance between the stone crusher and the bypass road. Trucks used to travel through the old 4km road, which Palestinian are not allowed to take since it has a gate at its beginning. The new road will shorten the distance to the half.

In the beginning of 2017, Israeli Occupation Forces issued stop-work orders on residences of Azazmeh family, who live in the area where the new road is being worked on. This step is meant to push them out of the area to make room for the new project to be implemented.
