The Civil Administration of Judea and Samaria on Wednesday destroyed tents
and barracks that housed families in the West Bank Palestinian village of
Khirbet Tana, according to the United Nations.

It was the fourth time since 2005, according to the UN, that the civil
administration demolished homes in the village, which is located near Nablus
and which the IDF considers a closed military zone.

As of press time, officials were unclear as to the exact number of demolished structures, but said that at least eight families lost their homes.

Separately, the civil administration demolished a fledgling unauthorized
Jewish outpost located outside the settlement of Kiryat Arba. The outpost,
called Mitzpe Avihai, has been demolished and rebuilt numerous times.
