Israeli occupation forces are continuing to expand the military area it established 16 years ago in Al-Khalil, Palestinian sources have said.
According to local sources, the occupation forces today erected six caravans in the camp near Tel Armida, which overlooks Al-Khalil’s Old City.
Occupation forces began moving the caravans to the area yesterday, the sources added, in addition to erecting an iron gate and military watchtower in the area.
Al-Khalil Rehabilitation Committee said it had filed an objection in an Israeli court in effort to stop the expansion.
Israel was angered in July following the UNESCO declaration that the Old City of Al-Khalil is a Palestinian World Heritage Site endangered by Israel.
