Israeli forces demolish under-construction house in Nablus

March 7, 2019 12:17 P.M. (Updated: March 7, 2019 1:40 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished an under-construction house in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on Thursday morning.

Head of the Sabastiya municipality and a mutual service council, Muhammad Aazem, told Ma'an that several Israeli military patrols escorted bulldozers that demolished an under-construction house belonging to Mushir Suleiman Saif from the Burqa village.

The two-story house is located in the al-Masudiya area and was not issued building permits by Israel under the pretext that it is located in Area C.

In February, Israeli forces seized 4000-square-meters of tiles from a park in the al-Masudiya area.

Israeli forces regularly confiscate and demolish Palestinian structures deemed as illegal by the Israeli government, most commonly in Area C, the area of the West Bank under full Israeli security and civilian control.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in Area C, forcing most Palestinians to build without permits.

All building in Area C, whether by Palestinians or Jewish settlers, comes under the jurisdiction of the Israeli Civil Administration, which has full control over all zoning and planning issues.

In practice, almost all Palestinian applications for a building permit are rejected, with the Civil Administration granting only a handful of permits.
