The Occupation Notifies a Structure for Suliman family in Tuqu’ town / Hebron governorate


  • Violation: Removal notice for a building.
  • Location: Tuqu’ town / Hebron governorate.
  • Date: February 9th 2021.
  • Perpetrators: The Israeli Civil Administration.
  • Victims: Mahmoud Suliman.


Tuesday, February 9th 2021, The Israeli Occupation Forces raided Tuqu’ town and notified a house belong to citizen Mahmoud Suliman on the pretext of building without a license.

Mahmoud Suliman told LRC:

“We sat up foundations for the house in a residential area, the construction was implemented few months ago, but we just received a notice for the building on the main street.”

According to the notice, the occupation forces may remove the building within 96 hours after delivering the notice, and the affected may object within 69 hours (but that won’t necessarily protect them from demolition).

This type of notices is unjust to Palestinians, the owners are not given enough time notice to defend themselves, this type of orders aim to stop Palestinians from building on their own lands, the notice does not even give legal aid institutions the chance to defend the victims.

Moreover, The occupation carries out a number of Human Rights Violations in Tuqu’, including movement restrictions and closures in the village’s main entrances. In addition, the occupation forces internationally terrorize children on their way to and from school.
