Israeli forces demolish 3 Palestinian-owned agricultural rooms in Bethlehem

Bethlehem (In Palestine Today)- Israeli occupation forces earlier on Tuesday demolished three Palestinian-owned agricultural rooms in the town of Nahalin, west of Bethlehem city, assaulting its residents who tried to prevent the demolition operation.

Local sources said Israeli occupation forces earlier today raided the town of Nahalin, escorted bulldozers to the area and started demolishing three agricultural rooms owned by Palestinian residents. The three rooms are located in two different parts of the town.

The occupation forces brutally attacked and beat residents of the town who tried to prevent the demolition operation of their own structures.

Israeli occupation constantly demolishes structures and houses of Palestinians in Area C, claiming they were built without a permit, rarely, if ever, issued for Palestinians by the occupation authorities.

The occupation authorities also do not allow any development there while using the occupied land for its illegal settlement activities.

Under the 1995 Oslo Accords between ‘Israel’ and the Palestinian Authority, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, was divided into three portions — Area A, B and C.

Area C is currently home to around 300,000 Palestinians.

Thus, house and structures demolitions, confiscation of the most basic infrastructure and military training exercises are part of everyday reality in the area.

There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
