Israel to demolish Palestinian home, steel structure in Yatta

March 31, 2019 12:56 P.M. (Updated: April 1, 2019 3:30 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities delivered demolition notices for a Palestinian-owned home and a steel structure for housing sheep, east of Yatta, south of the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on Sunday.

According to local sources, Israeli authorities delivered a demolition notice for a family home to resident Abed al-Mutleb al-Nuajaa and another notice for a steel structure for housing sheep to MousaHassan al-Shuwaheen.

Sources confirmed that the demolition of the home and the structure would be carried out under the pretext that it was built without the nearly-impossible to obtain Israeli permit.

Coordinator of a local settlement against the Israeli separation wall, Rateb al-Jbour, said that recently Israeli forces delivered 10 demolition notices to Palestinian homes and structures in the area, in order to clear the lands for future illegal Israeli settlement plans.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, although the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory are more easily given building permits and allowed to expand their homes and properties.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C -- the more than 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control -- are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.

Around 3,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal Jewish-only settlements in the Yatta region, according to the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.
