Israeli Army Destroys Many Toilets

The Israeli army has demolished a large number of outhouses in the South Hebron Hills region.

I spent quite a bit of time in this area last year when working with the International Solidarity Movement in the West Bank. It is probably the poorest area of the West Bank, with many dwellers living in caves rather than homes. The residents are subject to daily attacks by settlers (see ISM reports from the Hebron regions here and Christian Peacemaker Teams reports here).

I suppose outhouses are dangerous, and prevent potential suicide bombers from having sex.
