Army Demolishes Home, Four Residential Sheds, In Tubas


18 March 2015


IMEMC & Agencies



Israeli soldiers invaded, Wednesday, two Palestinian villages in the central West Bank district of Tubas, and demolished a home and four residential structures.


The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that several military vehicles, and armored bulldozers, surrounded two villages in Tubas, before invading them.


WAFA added that the soldiers demolished four residential structures in the Khirbat al-Mathun village, after violently forcing the families out.


The soldiers also invaded Khirbat al-Hadidiyya area, in the Northern Plains east of Tubas, and demolished a home.


The latest attacks are part of numerous repeated violations targeting Palestinian communities, especially Bedouin communities in Tubas, in an attempt to force them to leave for the benefit of illegal construction and expansion of settlements, and for military purposes, including live fire training.

Israeli Soldiers Destroy 300 Olive Trees near Nablus


19 March 2015


IMEMC News & Agencies


Israeli forces, on Wednesday evening, uprooted 300 olive trees and destroyed more than 5,000 meters of stone barriers belonging to Palestinians in the village of Majdal Bani Fadil, south of Nablus.





Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an News Agency that dozens of Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers raided the area in the evening.


He said that the soldiers entered the Kfar Ataya area, located on the northern side of the village, and uprooted hundreds of trees.


Daghlas told Ma’an that the trees belonged to villagers Maher Abd al-Raouf Khatib and Bashar Abdullah Ahmad.


He said that they had been planted as part of an agricultural project in the area.


Israeli authorities have apparently objected to the project and Daghlas said the matter was currently in court.


An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Majdal Bani Fadil is located on the eastern edge of the Nablus region, and is surrounded by areas under Israeli military control as well as Israeli settlements on all sides.

Dozens of Homes Demolished in the Northern Valleys, 150 Olive Trees Uprooted in Hebron


19 March 2015


IMEMC News & Agencies



Israeli occupation forces this morning held a military operative in the areas of Makhoul and al-Hadidiyya, in the northern valleys, where bulldozers demolished dozens of homes and livestock barns, and confiscated two water tanks in al-Farisiya, with no previous warning.


Israeli forces arrived to Khirbet Makhoul in the early morning, where they demolished homes without any previous warning or official paper work, PNN reports.


Soldiers surrounded the area and formed a security cordon around it, detained a number of citizens who tried to reach their homes, and threatened them with evacuation, despite their having legal property and rent papers.


Deputy Governor, Ahmed As’ad headed to the area by the early hours of today, accompanied by the Valleys file official, Mutaz Bisharat, and director of the civil association Ayman Sawafta.


As’ad denounced the Israeli continuous demolitions, saying that these actions show the hypocrisy of Israeli claims of "democracy", since it comes a day immediately following the elections.

As’ad added that Israeli authorities were willing to evacuate the valley of Palestinians for settlement expansion and Judaization projects.


In a statement which PNN received, As’ad added that the governor, in cooperation with the local and international associations, are to rebuild what the occupation has demolished. He called on the international community to take immediate action and stop the Israeli crimes, which contradict the Geneva fourth convention calling on security for the people.


Meanwhile, Israeli forces, at 6:00 AM on Wednesday, handed out eviction notices to homes and agricultural lands within an area of approximately 36 acres. The pretext: “It is state land.”


Soldiers delivered up to 18 evacuation notices to the population of the area south of Hebron, in the last month.


A few days earlier, in the same area, Israeli forces supported by Civil Administration powers, uprooted 150 olive trees within about 40 acres from the private land of farmer Adam Ibrahim Nassar.


Grass roots municipality, with the help of a group of NGOs, started to document the various Israeli offenses and attacks. The group calls upon the need of citizens to document such crimes.
