Israel demolishes two Palestinian-owned structures in Yatta

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished two Palestinian housing rooms, on Wednesday, in the Yatta area of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.

Coordinator of a local settlement against the Israeli separation wall, Rateb al-Jbour, said that Israeli forces demolished two rooms for allegedly being built with the nearly-impossible-to-obtain Israeli permit.

Al-Jbour identified the owners of the two demolished rooms as Jahed and Fadel Barqan, pointing out that the owners were not previously notified of the demolition.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, although 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.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C -- the more than 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control -- are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.

Around 3,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal Jewish-only settlements in the Yatta region, according to the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.
