Real archaeologists use trowels and brushes to excavate ancient remains. Political “archaeologists”, whose only purpose is to give a pretext to grab Palestinian land and give it to Israeli colonists, use a bulldozer. In the process some of the stones get dislodged from the middle bronze age Canaanite wall. This does not matter as it is not Jewish heritage and does not contribute to the Jewish colonists narrative. Muslim graves built on bedrock have also been destroyed here in Tel Rumeida, Hebron, Palestine. Muslim remains tell the wrong narrative.

The Israeli government granted 7 million shekels to fund this project to create a biblical archaeological tourist site here. This was decided before digging and without finding any evidence of biblical events at this site. They have already prepared their story before digging so it matters little what they actually find here.
