Israel demolishes Palestinian structure near Nablus

Nov. 12, 2018 2:46 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 12, 2018 5:09 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished a Palestinian-owned structure, on Monday, Qusra village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israeli forces escorted bulldozers that raided the Qausra village and demolished a structure that included a kitchen and a toilet.

The demolished structure belonged to resident, Moussa Ahmad Hussein Hassan.

Daghlas added that the structure was demolished under the pretext that is was built without the difficult-to-obtain Israeli permit.

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

Under the 1993 Oslo Accords, which delegated various degrees of autonomy to the Palestinian Authority (PA) around built up and urban areas, Israel retained full civil and military control over 60% of the West Bank, which is now known as "Area C."

In Area C, Palestinian construction and land management is prohibited unless through consent or authorization by the Israeli Civil Administration.
