HEBRON (Ma’an) — A military closure order over the village of Amniyr in the southern West Bank was renewed until Monday following the demolition of 12 tent homes earlier in the week, observers said.

A group from the Christian Peacemaker Teams said the first military order was issued on May 6 when the demolitions of the homes were carried out. It was the third time the homes have been taken down.

The demolition orders say the herding community is residing illegally on land designated for military use.
