HEBRON, Tuesday, June 11, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Tuesday morning demolished a residential building in the neighborhood of Jabal Jouhar, southeast of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.
WAFA correspondent said that the soldiers escorted a bulldozer to the area and demolished the building stormed the area and demolishing the building, which consisted of four apartments and a basement in addition to a water collection well purportedly for being built without a license.
The homeowner was identified as Zayed al-Rajby.
The reason for unauthorized Palestinian building is that Israeli often rejects Palestinian applications for licenses or permits.
While Israel often refuses to permit virtually any Palestinian construction in Area C, which constitutes 60 percent of the occupied West Bank, it much more easily gives the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers building permits and provides them with roads, electricity, water and sewage systems that remain inaccessible to many neighboring Palestinians.
