On June 1st, the Israeli Civil Administration carried out mass demolitions of 10 structures in Al-Fakheit and Al-Mirkez, two villages in the Masafer Yatta region of the West Bank. The majority of the structures belonged to the same families whose homes were demolished on May 11th, days after Israel approved the forced expulsion of Masafer Yatta's residents. Since December 2021, Israel has carried out mass demolitions of Al-Fakheit and Al-Mirkez three times.
