Israeli forces demolish agricultural structures near Jerusalem


JERUSALEM, Sunday, January 13, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers on Sunday demolished an animal barn and other agricultural structures in the village of Beit Iksa, northwest of Jerusalem, according to local sources.

Bilbal al-Mashni, member of Beit Iksa village council, said that the barns and the structures demolished belong to brothers Haytham and Ibrahim Abdul-Wahhab. He added that the soldiers prevented citizens from accessing the area where the demolition took place.

Occupation forces regularly demolish Palestinian homes and structures in the occupied West Bank under the pretext that they were built without the impossible to obtain building permits in an effort to expand settlements and force Palestinians from their homes and lands.

Palestinians from Beit Iksa are continuously subjected to almost daily harassment by Israeli forces and checkpoints. The village is surrounded by the Israeli separation barrier from the north, east and west, and by an Israeli checkpoint from the south.
