Israel demolishes agricultural structures near Nablus

Feb. 2, 2015 10:39 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 3, 2015 3:41 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday demolished two small farmhouses, a water well and stone walls in the West Bank village of Qusra, south of Nablus, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an that bulldozers escorted by Israel's military raided the village and demolished the structures, which were used to irrigate land.

Over 500 meters of traditional Palestinian stone wall was also demolished.

The mayor of Qusra, Abed al-Atheem al-Wadiyya, said the structures were built with money donated by the French government on land belonging to Anwar Tayseer and his brother Akram.

"We have all official documents and deeds which prove ownership of the land where the structures have been demolished," the mayor said.

The structures were located near the illegal outpost of Esh Kodesh. Settlers from the outpost have in the past committed so-called "price tag" attacks against local Palestinians.

Israel has demolished 77 Palestinian homes and agricultural structures since the beginning of 2015, making 110 people homeless, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said.

OCHA said that during 2014 Israel carried out a record number of demolitions in East Jerusalem and a zone of the West Bank under full Israeli control known as Area C.
