BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities demolished three buildings and a water cistern in the south Hebron hills on Tuesday, an international peace group said.

Forces bulldozed a two-story house in al-Deirat village owned by Mohammad Musa Mohammad Abu Aram, before flattening a sheep stable, Operation Dove said.

The officials then moved to nearby Jawwaya village, where they demolished a house and water cistern for rainfall, owned Mahmud Ahmed Nasser Nawaja, the Italian peace organization said.

In the first six months of 2011, Israeli authorities demolished 342 Palestinian-owned structures in Area C, displacing a total of 656 Palestinians, including 351 children -- almost five times as many demolitions and people displaced as during the first half of 2010, according to UN agency OCHA.

From 2000 to 2007, the Civil Administration approved 5 percent of the applications for building permits submitted by Palestinians in Area C.
