In the hills of southern Hebron, in the West Bank, a dozen small villages, the inhabitants see every week a string of diplomats, members of NGOs, activists, journalists... Because after two decades of proceedings, the High Court of Justice of Israel gave military authorization at the beginning of May to drive out this community of a thousand Palestinians to make this land a firing range for the training of the Israeli army.


This paves the way, some say, for the largest operation to displace Palestinians in the occupied West Bank since the Six-Day War in 1967.

"In Masafer Yatta, the distress of Palestinian residents" is a great report by Alice Froussard.
