It should be marked that the Israeli occupation threatens Palestinian properties of demolition on the claim of "unlicensed construction" in order to evict area "C" from Palestinians. This is to exploit such areas as reserves for colonial expansion.  Colonial expansion is given the green line and thousands of residential units are being built on confiscated lands from  the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

About Idhna:

It is 18km west of Hebron. According to statistics conducted in 2007, Idhna is inhabited by 19,012 people. It has a total area of 26,152 dunums, 2653of which are the village's built-up area.

The Israeli occupation confiscated 107 dunums of Idhna for the Apartheid Wall. Not only that, more than 3,511 dunums were isolated behind the wall as a result of its construction.

Besides, the bypass road number 35 -that is 4,674 meters long- confiscated more than 467 dunums from  the village lands.
