“Early 2019 , I built stores on the main street to create a source of income for myself , as I cannot find a job  and I am a supporter for a family of 7 , 3 of them are children, the construction caused about 27,000 $ , the occupation forces showed up and served a demolition order , noteworthy  this is the only plot I own and able to invest in , but the occupation still follows us whenever we go.”

According to Dhohor Al-Abed’s village council statistics, the occupation targeted more than 9 facilities with halt of work orders , all of them were issued after the construction of the apartheid wall in 2002.
