Israeli forces demolish factory, animal barns near Jenin

JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished a recently built factory and a number of livestock barns in two Palestinian villages in the northernmost West Bank district of Jenin on Wednesday morning.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that excavators under the protection of Israeli military vehicles stormed the village of Bartaa al-Sharqiyya south of Jenin and tore down a 650-square-meter metal structure housing a stone factory that was soon to begin operating.

The factory is owned by Jabir Awad Qabaha, and sources said the factory was completely equipped and ready to be inaugurated.

In a separate incident, Israeli military vehicles and two bulldozers stormed the village of Zabda west of Jenin, where the bulldozers demolished small metal structures that local farmers had been using as livestock farms.

The Israeli authorities claim that the structures, belonging to Walid Matar Abu Kbash, had been built without permission from the Israeli authorities.

The land is classified as Area C and therefore falls under full Israeli civil and military authority under the terms of the Oslo Accords.
