Israel demolishes Palestinian homes in West Bank

Israel has demolished more Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank amid its plans to annex parts of the occupied territories.

According to Press TV, Israeli bulldozers demolished a number of homes in Deir Hajla in the city of Ariha on Wednesday.

The demolitions left eight bedouin families displaced, including children, women and elderly.

The Palestinian Information Center reported that the Israeli authorities have demolished 15 residential and commercial buildings and razed vast tracts of farmland since Tuesday.

Israeli authorities demolish Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank usually claiming that the structures have been built without permits. They also sometimes order the Palestinian owners to demolish their own homes or pay the demolition costs to the municipality.

The latest demolitions come as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that he would start plans for annexing more areas in the occupied West Bank on July 1, in accordance with US President Donald Trump’s scheme, further infuriating Palestinians.

Trump officially unveiled his scheme in January at the White House with Netanyahu on his side, while Palestinian representatives were not invited.

The proposal gives in to Israel’s demands while creating a Palestinian state with limited control over its own security and borders, enshrining the occupied al-Quds as “Israel’s undivided capital”
