Occupation authorities demolish three rooms near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, Monday, March 15, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation authorities today demolished three agricultural rooms in Beit Ta‘mir village, southeast of Bethlehem, according to an activist.

Director of the Anti-Wall and Settlement Committee in Bethlehem district, Hassan Breija, said that Israeli forces escorted a bulldozer into the village, where the heavy machinery  tore down three agricultural rooms belonging to the Mhaimeed family purportedly for being built without licenses.

Israeli refuses to permit virtually any Palestinian construction in Area C, which constitutes 60 percent of the occupied West Bank and falls under full Israeli military rule, forcing residents to build without obtaining rarely-granted permits to provide shelters for their families.

In contrast, Israel much more easily gives over 700,000 Jewish Israeli settlers there building permits and provides them with roads, electricity, water and sewage systems that remain inaccessible to many neighboring Palestinians.
