December 2021: Month of harassment, evacuations, military training and demolitions in Khirbet Ibziq
In December 2021, the military has evacuated families from Khirbet Ibzik five times on the pretext that it needs to hold training right by the community’s homes. The last evacuation took place on 27 December 2021, at 8:00 A.M. The military did not allow the families to return to their homes until 2:00 A.M. On the day of the evacuation and the following day, the military conducted training, including with tanks, near the community’s homes and cultivated fields, damaging barley crops. Tanks fired shells 350 meters away from the residents’ homes. At around 9:00 A.M., Civil Administration personnel also came to the community. They dismantled and confiscated three residential tents belonging to three families numbering 16 people in total, including six minors. They also confiscated and dismantled eight tents used as livestock enclosures, two tents used for storing fodder, two water tanks and two solar panels.
