Israeli military helicopters fly over the Massafer Yatta area, near the West Bank City of Hebron, on 01 October 2013. According to reports, Palestinian citizens in the area south of Yatta must leave while Israeli government claims that all eight villages in a so-called 'Firing Zone 918' were merely temporary seasonal residences when the area was declared a closed military zone for training in 1980. The villagers say they have been living there permanently since before Israel’s establishment in 1948. Photo by Mamoun Wazwaz
