Israel demolishes 3 Palestinian homes near Nablus

Nov. 3, 2014 10:18 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 4, 2014 9:39 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday demolished three Palestinian homes in the Nablus-area village of Aqraba, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that bulldozers escorted by Israeli military vehicles entered the Khirbet al-Tawil area and destroyed three homes owned by Bahaa Maroof, Bani Fadil, and Osama Bani Fadil.

Israeli forces, including officers form the Civil Administration, declared the area a closed military zone during the demolition.

The area around Aqraba has been subject to multiple demolitions over the past few months, with Israeli soldiers destroying over 80 electricity pylons and wires in September and four houses in August.

On Oct. 21, settlers set up two new outposts near Aqraba after confiscating hundreds of dunams of land.
