The Palestinian Information Centre -  11 April 2011

Israeli bulldozers demolished Monday morning several homes and other structures in the village of Bir al-Hamam on the road to Dimona city, as well as some structures in a village near Araara in the Negev desert, said Ibrahim al-Waqili, who heads the council of unrecognized villages.

He added that Israel claimed the structures were built without permit and has declared the region a closed military zone.

Separately, the Israel occupation force has arrested three Palestinian men and set up random checkpoints at the entrances of the West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

The men were arrested after a large force infiltrated several neighborhoods and searched homes.

Checkpoints were set up in the northern and southern entrances of the city, and soldiers searched cars and inspected identifications without report of arrest.

The same day, Jewish settlers from Tel Rumeida, Al-Khalil vandalized and assaulted several shops in the Old City as Israeli soldiers stood by and did nothing. They also set fire to one of the shops.
