Palestinians argue with Israeli forces in Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern West Bank on July 19, 2022. The case of Masafer Yatta -- or Firing Zone 918 -- an agriculture area near Hebron in the occupied West Bank, has been one of Israel's longest running legal battles. Palestinian residents of eight villages had been in court for around 20 years fighting Israeli government efforts to evict them. In the early 1980s the army declared the 3,000-hectare (30 square kilometre) territory a restricted military area and claimed it was uninhabited. Photo by Mamoun Wazwaz
