Israeli forces demolish Palestinian structures in Salfit

June 21, 2015 5:17 P.M. (Updated: June 21, 2015 8:04 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday demolished two Palestinian structures in the northern West Bank district of Salfit, locals officials said.

Salfit's governor, Abdul Hamid al-Dik, said that bulldozers escorted by Israeli troops had entered Khirbet Susiya on the outskirts of Kafr al-Dik village, where they demolished an agricultural storage room belonging to a local identified as Najih Harb.

Al-Dik said that Israeli authorities told Harb the room had been built without permits required from the Israeli authorities to build in Area C.

Separately, al-Dik said that Israeli forces had raided the village of Haris and demolished a structure used as a car wash for the same reason.

The governor condemned the demolitions, which he said were carried out under "illegal pretexts" in an attempt to "empty the land of its indigenous owners" and pave the way for settlers to expand their illegal settlements.

Building permits must be approved by Israeli Civil Administration in order for construction to take place in Palestinian land classified as Area C under the Oslo Accords, where Israel has full military and civil control.

As a result of rarely-approved permits, Palestinian residents are forced to build structures without permits, which are liable to be torn down later by Israeli forces.
