Donation box to rebuild the home of Muhannad al-Halabi near Ramallah

Israel outraged by Palestinians donating to rebuild demolished homes

PNN/ Bethlehem/
Israeli media on Thursday morning reported an Israeli outrage by the Palestinians donating money to rebuild the demolished homes of those who have been killed by IOF.

According to Walla Israeli website, the Israeli army said that these donations are ruining the Israeli “deterrence policies” against Palestinian resistance.

Walla added that Israel accuses the Palestinian Authority of supporting these donations, in midst of PA calling on IOF not to continue collective punishments and demolitions, as they “increase tensions.”

Palestinians in West Bank have started a donation campaign to rebuild the home of 19-year-old Muhannad Al-Halabi near Ramallah, after it was destro

yed by IOF last Saturday.

Al-Halabi was shot dead by IOF on 3 October 2015, after allegedly stabbing, killing two settlers and injuring another.

Spokesman of the campaign Abdul Karim Abu Arqoub said that the donations reached $38,000 on the first day. Middle East Monitor said.


Last month, Palestinians also bought and furnished a new home for the family of Ibrahim Al-Akkari in Shu’afat refugee camp, East Jerusalem.

Israel is still going strong with demolition policy, destroying homes under different pretexts, which include security reasons, a lack of building licences, being built near the settlements or across the settlement roads, being built on state lands or being built on green areas, Days of Palestine said.

According to a PLO affiliated study, IOF have destroyed some 478 Palestinian facilities, including homes, clinics and historical sites during 2015.
