Hamas: IOA demolition policy would not weaken Palestinian determination

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Hamas said in a statement on Wednesday that the Israeli occupation authority’s (IOA) streak of demolition of Palestinian homes would not dissuade our people from defending their land.

It denounced the IOA destruction of a school and 16 homes east of Yatta village, Al-Khalil district, charging that the act aimed at evicting the indigenous people from their own land to allow more room for construction of settlements.

Hamas called on the Palestinians to remain steadfast and not to cave in to the IOA “racist” policy. It also asked the Arab League and human rights groups to immediately intervene to pressure the IOA to stop its crimes against the Palestinian people and their land.

IOA bulldozers razed the school and homes of Ka’abna Bedouins at the pretext of lack of construction permit.

Israeli occupation forces in 35 armored vehicles stormed the Ka’abna area and protected bulldozers as they tore down the houses built of tin and mud.

Chairman of the Ka’abna municipal council said that tens of Arab Bedouins live in those houses, adding that three of them were detained including two teachers who tried to save the chairs in the school from destruction.
