HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces handed confiscation orders to ten landowners in villages near Hebron on Thursday, locals told Ma'an.

The troops also handed demolition orders for 14 houses in southern Hebron village Susiya, residents said.

Israeli authorities told four landowners in Surif village, which neighbors Susiya, that their land would be seized. The lands belong to Ismael Musa Othman Ighnnimat, Atef Atallah Ibrahim Ighnimat, Mohammad Abdullah Ahmad al-Qadi, and Mohammad Ibrahim al-Hour, a Ma'an reporter said.

North of Hebron, Israeli forces told six landowners in Kharas their land would be confiscated. The orders were received by Hassan Musallam Ismael, Mohammad Hussain Ismael Nimir, Ahmad Husssain Ismael Nimir, Ibrahim Abdul Hadi Halahla, Abdul Majid Mahmoud Musallam and Abdul Raheem Mahmoud Musallam, Ma'an has learned.

In nearby Beit Ula, the Coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall said Thursday that Israeli troops bulldozed a field belonging to Fayez Mohammad Abdul Ghani al-Omla, including electricity and water networks supplying his property.

Research by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees has found that 990 people -- including 507 children -- have lost their homes so far this year to Israeli demolitions, more than double the number for 2010.
