Israeli forces demolish 2 Jericho homes

Jan. 5, 2012 1:30 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 6, 2012 12:03 A.M.)
JERICHO (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished two homes belonging to Jerusalem families in a village near West Bank city Jericho on Thursday.

Bulldozers accompanied by military patrols tore down the homes in al-Duyuk, west of Jericho, also destroying the electricity connection to the site, residents told Ma'an.

Forces told the owners the houses were built without a permit in Area C, which Israel fully controls under the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Encompassing 60 percent of the West Bank, Israel only allows Palestinians to build in 1 percent of Area C, on land which is already heavily built up.
