The two demolished and confiscated tents, consist of a tent with an area of 50 square meters which was used as a residence for Al-Sarai’a

As-Sarais’a had come to the area in search of pastures for his livestock, knowing that he is a Bedouin citizen of the eastern town of Yatta, and he travels with his livestock in search of pastures and water.

It should be noted that the occupation authorities clearly target the Khallet Taha area, west Dura, by demolishing citizens houses and tents, and to prevent construction in that particular area due to the existence of the colony of “Nighot”  which is constantly expanding  at the expense of the surrounding Palestinian land.
