Israeli bulldozers demolish Palestinian home near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces stormed the Duma village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, and demolished a Palestinian home under the pretext that it was built without the difficult-to-obtain Israeli permit.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that a large number of Israeli forces along with several bulldozers stormed the village and demolished a Palestinian home and a wall, which belonged to Amer Sari.

Daghlas added that the demolished home measured 40-square-meters and the wall was dozens of meters long.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem.

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.
