Welcome to the Voice of America’s News Words.
In January, Israeli forces destroyed two homes in the Hebron area of the West Bank.
Israeli authorities said the homes did not have the necessary permits and were built illegally.
A scuffle started between local residents and Israeli Army officers.
The homeowners said they were in the process getting the legal permits.
A scuffle is a fight involving physical contact among a small number of people.
A scuffle is also a tool used in field work by pushing it against the ground instead of pulling it.
Now you know what scuffle means.
