Israel to demolish electricity grid, water well in Hebron village

May 25, 2015 9:50 P.M. (Updated: May 26, 2015 11:16 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities delivered a demolition order to an electricity grid and water well in the western Hebron village of al-Kum on Monday.

Local Ismail al-Rujoub said that Israeli forces stormed the village and delivered the orders for an electricity grid of 800 meters owned by the al-Yassiriya municipality that currently provides power to a village neighborhood of 10 houses.

Al-Rujoub said that the case required legal expertise to be solved.

The Israeli authorities also delivered a demolition order for a water well with a 450 cubic meter capacity belonging to Muhammad Abd al-Hafith al-Rujoub.

Al-Rujoub added that this was the second time in a row he had received a demolition order for the well.

Israel destroyed 591 Palestinian properties in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2014, displacing 1,177 people, according to UNOCHA.

It has demolished at least 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures since occupying the West Bank in 1967, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

There should be consequences for Israeli apartheid, colonialism, and abuse of human rights. Building is illegal because they won't issue permits. The government and their supporters will soon be tried, if not in Hague, then by world opinion. It will not set well for them.

Jon, as I keep telling you, land Israel controls in the West Bank due to conflict not the same as land in Israel proper and necessary security in the West Bank is not apartheid. Pay attention.

Tibi - considering Israel is entirely on stolen land, there should be consequences for it's unpermitted, illegal building - and we won't even go into the settler/invader's unpermitted, illegal building

All despicable Hasbara trolls apart from Jon. As for Tibi/Tubas, has he heard his words resounding in his ears - quote - "there should be consequences for unpermitted, illegal building, which should be harsh enough to serve as a deterrent!!" -end quote. Israel, do you hear?

@ Dan / USA
Consider -1- Israel is entirely justified on living on it's ancestral homeland, and -2- that Palestinians claims of 1967 lines are entirely based on the illegitimate Jordanian invasion of 1948, which international law clearly would consider to be illegal.

Three Truths / USA
-1- Such illegal Arab construction was built without permits, while
Jewish construction is typically built after getting permits, which
-2- Explains why one is demolished, and the other is not. And,
-3- Israeli laws will always supercede international opinnion on such disputes !!
