Hi  @adtyh jkipmsd, thanks for reaching out!

First of all, please note that this is not a Bitbucket specific question, this is a question specific to Git. That said, I'll still try to help you but you might also like to know that there are other multiple forums where you can find help and information regarding this system :) 

The command you pasted above is only one command from the sequence of commands you need to make the operation effective. The removal would go something like this:

git rm <directory>
git commit -m "Removed Directory"
git push origin master

Once you push the change (the removal of the file/s) the operation will be completed and the file/s deleted. If the operation is not successful, you should receive some kind of error. If you do, please let us know and share here the error message so we can look into it. 

For additional information, you can also read Git's official documentation.

Hope that helps!
