Palestinians face biggest eviction in years


Many houses in the Masafer Yatta area, where approximately 1200 Palestinians live, Israel destroyed under the watch of his soldiers. On the other hand, the presence of Jewish settlers in the region is also increasing.

Israel declared this area as a ‘military training ground’. The Israeli Supreme Court also stood by this claim in May, and tensions in the region rose.

If it proceeds as planned, the region could experience the largest mass evacuation in decades.

The Palestinians interviewed by the BBC are concerned about the developments in the region and say that they cannot see a future for themselves.

Israel has already started demolition work, saying that the houses for which it has not given construction permits are ‘illegal’. On the other hand, getting permission is not easy for Palestinians.

The issue of settlements has long been debated between Israel and the international community.


After Israel’s 1967 invasion West Bank and hundreds of thousands of Jews live in the settlements he established in East Jerusalem.

United Nations Security Council resolution 2334: “Israel immediately and completely, including East Jerusalem, Palestine should stop all settlement activities on its territory”.

In the years following the 1967 war, Israeli settlers began to move to the West Bank.

Some saw it as a ‘return to their holy homeland’ as written in the Torah.

This settlement, which started slowly, reached large numbers after the mid-1980s.
