Newspaper Review: Israel's demolition of a Palestinian house focus of dailies

RAMALLAH, Monday, January 31, 2022 (WAFA) – News about Israeli authorities' demolition of a Palestinian-owned house in an occupied West Bank village hit the front pages of the three Arabic Palestinian dailies on Monday.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida, al-Ayyam and al-Quds said that Israeli occupation forces on Sunday demolished a Palestinian-owned house under construction in the village of Al-Aqaba, to the east of Tubas town in the north of the occupied West Bank.

The papers explained that an Israeli army force stormed the village and cordoned off the surrounding of the targeted house before proceeding with its demolition. 

According to the dailies, Israeli settlers uprooted dozens of trees in the village of Housan, in the district of Bethlehem.

Hundreds of Palestinians demonstrated on Sunday outside the all-Israeli Municipality of Jerusalem in protest of the Israeli home demolition campaign targeting Palestinians in the occupied city and in the rest of the Israeli-occupied territories, as reported in the dailies.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida said that a United States federal court blocked the state of Texas from enforcing its anti-boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) law against a Palestinian-American contractor who refused to sign a pledge not to boycott Israel. Rasmy Hassouna, an engineer and executive vice president of the Palestinian-owned A&R Engineering and Testing Inc, filed the lawsuit in November challenging a Texas law that bars the state from doing business with companies participating in the BDS movement against Israel.

Al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida reported a statement by the Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh, who said that the issue of prisoners is a top priority for President Mahmoud Abbas, who demands their release in all his meetings, whether with the Israelis, the Americans, or with any international parties.

The papers said that 11 people have died of coronavirus in Palestine in the last 24 hours as 8657 new cases were recorded.

Al-Quds and al-Ayyam said that the family of cancer-stricken Palestinian prisoner Naser Abu Hmeid warned against the deterioration of his health due to Israeli medicial neglegance.
