Zionist forces storm neighborhood in Tira, demolish Palestinian homes

Zionist regime forces have demolished four Palestinian homes in the city of Tira, displacing their residents.

Authorities of the illegal Zionist entity bulldozed the houses in the city, located in the central part of the occupied territories, at dawn on Sunday, the Palestinian Information Center reported.

The report, citing local sources, added that Israeli police forces first stormed the neighborhood and cordoned off the area, before carrying out the demolitions.

The move angered local residents and has drawn widespread condemnation of the Israeli regime for exploiting the coronavirus crisis to press ahead with its demolition campaign in Palestinian-populated areas to expand its illegal settlements.

Last month, the Palestinian minister of al-Quds affairs, Fadi al-Hadami condemned Israel’s exploitation of the pandemic to expand its illegal settlement construction activities, saying the Tel Aviv regime aims to further Judaize the holy city of al-Quds.

“In light of the world’s preoccupation with the fight against the [COVID-19] epidemic, we see that the pace of settlement expansion in al-Quds has increased, with more than 17,700 illegal settlement units being built just within the past two months. This indicates that Israel cares neither about the epidemic nor the campaign against coronavirus, and is simply pursuing its policies of settlement construction,” Hadami said.
