The residents of A’nizan are packing up their belongings and leaving the small Palestinian hamlet in the South Hebron Hills due to repeated instances of settler violence and harassment, Yehuda Shaul, human rights activist and co-director of the Ofek Israeli Center for Public Affairs, tweets.

A’nizan is made up of four families totaling some 35 residents, he says, adding that it is located across the road from Khirbet Zanuta — another hamlet deserted by its residents due to settler violence, which has intensified since the outbreak of the Gaza war.

Shaul calls the situation “forcible transfer.”
