Israel to Remove Source of Electricity south of Hebron

Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA 
HEBRON, August 27, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday notified the residents of Khirbet al-Taban, a locale east of the town of Yatta south of Hebron, of their plans to remove the solar cells in the area; the only source of electricity there, according to a local activist.
Ratib al-Jabour, coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in southern Hebron, said Israeli forces, along with officers from the civil administration, handed the residents a military order to remove the solar cells in the area.
Al-Jabour said these Israeli measures aim to force the residents to leave the area in order to seize land.
He called upon human rights organizations to intervene to stop the removal of the solar cells in that area and to protect its residents from the Judization policy pursued by the Israeli authorities.
