Description : Bedouin families living in the Massafer Yatta area in the southern West Bank saw their houses destroyed and their flocks scattered when the IDF moved into their hamlet with bulldozers in February this year. To help families who have had their homes demolished, the ICRC provides tents and household items including blankets, kitchen utensils and jerrycans. But the future for these very vulnerable people looks bleak. Plans have been drawn up to expand and further consolidate the settlements in the region, to add outposts, and to build a new road linking the settlements. The Palestinians believe that this is a prelude to annexing land in Massafer Yatta. They live under the continuing threat of expulsion. The economic and social situation can only get worse in view of the growing restrictions on movement. For farmer Soleiman Hadalin, the situation is frustrating: "They
destroyed the house, regardless of the law".
