Israel demolishes several greenhouses, shacks south of Nablus

NABLUS, Wednesday, November 30, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today demolished several Palestinian greenhouses and shacks in Aqraba village, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli forces escorted a bulldozer into al-Afjam area, east of the village, where the heavy machinery tore down five greenhouses and five shacks belonging to the villagers.

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 in incessantly-expanding colonial settlements building permits and provides them with roads, electricity, water and sewage systems that remain inaccessible to many neighboring Palestinians.
