Israeli military demolishes Palestinian-owned farm house in south of West Bank


HEBRON, Wednesday, July 15, 2020 (WAFA) – An Israeli army force demolished today a farm house in the town of Dura, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to the house owner Mohammad Abu Zneid.

He told WAFA that he built the two-room house in his farm in order to spend some time there with his family during weekends or holidays but that the army came to his farm and demolished it without any prior notice.

Israel does not allow Palestinian construction in a large area of the occupied West Bank known as Area C, including on privately-owned land.

Its military demolished 347 Palestinian structures so far this year, more than 80 percent of them in Area C, displacing 387 people, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the occupied Palestinian territories.
