PA: Israel to demolish 9 homes in Nablus village

June 20, 2013 1:47 P.M. (Updated: June 21, 2013 9:53 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces handed down warning notices to nine residents to clear their houses of their belongings ahead of demolition in the village of Duma in the northern West Bank district of Nablus, a Palestinian Authority official said.

PA settlement affairs chief Ghassan Daghlas said the residents were told their homes were built without a permit.

Parts of the village are designated as Area C, over which Israel retains near-exclusive control over zoning, construction and security. According to the UN only 1 percent of the whole of Area C has been allocated for Palestinian construction, forcing Palestinians to "build illegally."

The homes slated for demolition belong to Muhammad Abdul Latif Dawabsheh, Mahmoud Dawabsheh, Najeh Dawabsheh, Zaher Dawabsheh, Wahid Dawabsheh, Majdi Dawabsheh, Dirar Dawabsheh and Nael Salawdeh.
