Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Monday monring have demolished acricultural facility in Masafer Yatta, southern Hebron Hills, and bulldozed lands in Salfit, northern West Bank.
Coordinator of the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, Rateb Jabour, told PNN that IOF demolished the facility, and handed the owner a notice to halt building his home on his property, claiming that the land was “State Property” and he had no permission to build.
At the same time, Israeli bulldozers and jackhammers were bulldozing, leveling Palestinian lands to the west of Salfit in order to expand Ariel illegal settlement, as reported by PIC.
PIC added that researcher Khaled Maali said several Palestinian lands have been razed by the occupation bulldozers in Salfit towns and in the four industrial zones located in the city’s northern and western corners. According to Maali, such moves represent a flagrant violation of the international humanitarian law, which prohibits settlement and the establishment of occupation institutions on colonized lands.
