Israeli bulldozers demolish caravan in West Bank village

Jan. 16, 2019 11:11 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 18, 2019 1:33 P.M.)
JERICHO (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished a Palestinian-owned caravan, on Wednesday, in the Fasayil village in the central occupied West Bank district of Jericho.

According to Aref Daraghmeh, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the area, said that Israeli bulldozers demolished a caravan belonging to Palestinian, Abed al-Hadi Abyat, under the pretext under the pretext of being built without the difficult-to-obtain Israeli permit.

Abyat confirmed that the demolished caravan measured 30-square-meters.

Abyat also mentioned that although he hired an attorney after he had received a demolition notice four months ago, the Israeli authorities carried on with the demolition, leaving his family homeless.

Israel uses the pretext of building without a permit to carry out demolitions of Palestinian-owned homes on a regular basis.

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

According to Palestinians and rights groups, Israel's overall goal, both in its policies in Area C and Israel's settlement enterprise, is to depopulate the land of its Palestinian residents and replace them with Jewish Israeli communities in order to manipulate population demographics in all of historic Palestine.
