Israel orders demolition of 2 Palestinian homes near Nablus

March 14, 2019 10:55 A.M. (Updated: March 14, 2019 12:30 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities delivered demolition orders to two Palestinian-owned homes in Duma village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on Wednesday evening.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israeli authorities formally delivered demolition orders to two family homes, in Duma village, within a week.

Daghlas added that the owners of the two homes are from Jerusalem City, in the central West Bank, however, no names were issued on the demolition orders.

The orders mentioned that in less than a week, the demolition would be carried out.

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.

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

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.
