Israeli forces demolish Palestinian home in southern Hebron

Oct. 17, 2018 12:34 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 17, 2018 3:50 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian-owned home, on Wednesday morning, in the Khillet al-May village south of the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Local sources said that an Israeli bulldozer escorted by Israeli forces raided the Khillet al-May village and demolished a Palestinian home belonging to Shihadeh Abu Tah.

Sources added that the home as demolished under the pretext of being built without the difficult-to-obtain Israeli permit.

In Area C, the more than 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli security and civilian control, Palestinian construction and land management is prohibited unless through consent or authorization by the Israeli Civil Administration.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.

Meanwhile, the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory are more easily given building permits and allowed to expand their homes and properties, despite living in settlements that violate international law.
