South Hebron Hills

Don't Say We Didn't Know #441

Clarification:

After publicizing the news about destroying crops in the South Hebron Hills, I found out that I had been mistaken: the lands concerned are located inside Israel proper. They had been the property of the said villagers prior to 1948. Following the war, as they were on the Israeli side of the border, Israel's government took over their ownership. The original owners claim their right to have them back.

On Wednesday, 4th February, 2015, tractors from the Parks and Nature Reserves Authority, with a military escort, destroyed nearly 800 dunums (dunum = 1000 sq.m) of crops belonging to Palestinians in the South Hebron Hills, on lands belonging to villagers from Jinba, Halawa and Markaz.

On Tuesday, 3rd February, 2015, government representatives escorted by the Yoav unit of the police force came to Bedouin localities in the Negev to plough and destroy crops.  First they destroyed in Abu Grinat, near Aroer junction, and then in Hura.  On their way back from Hura, they were involved in an accident in which eight Bedouin women from Hura were killed and thirty injured.
