HEBRON, January 25, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday demolished a residence that housed orphans and a shack in Khirbet Umm al-Khair, a locale in the Hebron south of West Bank, according to a Palestinian activist.


Ratib al-Jabour, coordinator of the popular committee against the wall and settlements in Hebron, told WAFA that Israeli bulldozers, accompanied by soldiers, police, and officers from the civil administration stormed Khirbet Umm al-Khair, closed the area off and demolished the residence and the shack.


Witnesses told WAFA that the 60-year-old owner of the residences fainted while trying to stop the bulldozers from demolishing his house and shed.


The demolition of the house left the orphans with no shelter during this cold winter, said Jabour.


The Israeli authorities have demolished during the past several months a large number of houses, animal barns and sheds in this area for the benefit of expanding a nearby Jewish settlement.
