Israeli forces order removal of power grid in Nablus-area town

NABLUS, Sunday, August 28, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today ordered the removal of a power grid in the town of Sebastia to the northwest of Nablus, according to a local official.

Mayor of Sebastia, Mohammad Azem, told WAFA that Israeli forces ordered the municipality to remove a 1200-meter-long power grid built near the archeological site of Sebastia under the pretext of being built in area C, which falls under full Israeli control.

Israel refuses to allow Palestinian development of any kind in Area C, which makes up over 60 percent of the total area of the occupied West Bank, and often demolishes what Palestinians build, often with assistance from international parties, such as the EU, despite the Israeli ban.
