Israeli forces demolish house, water well in Hebron

Sept. 2, 2014 10:35 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 4, 2014 9:58 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday demolished a house and a water well in Hebron, locals said.

Muhammad Nafith al-Herbawi, the owner of the land, said that Israeli forces demolished his house with all his belongings inside and also destroyed a well and a 100-meter long wall.

In a statement to Ma'an, Israel's coordinator of government activities in the territories, or COGAT, said that "security forces carried out the demolition of two buildings which were built without the necessary permits in the Hebron area."

Earlier, a Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces demolished Palestinian homes and structures near Jabaa village east of Jerusalem.

Bulldozers demolished five houses, four steel structures, and a barn that belonged to Bedouin families.

Israel has demolished 359 Palestinian structures in the West Bank so far in 2014, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

Some 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures have been demolished by Israel since it occupied the West Bank in 1967.
