Jenin (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces demolished Palestinian-owned structures and a water tank in the city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank on Monday.
Earlier today, the forces stormed Ya’bad town in Jenin and demolished three Palestinian stores and a water tank used to irrigate crops in the area under the pretext of lacking an Israeli-issued construction permit.
Israeli occupation constantly demolishes structures and houses of Palestinians in Area C, claiming they were built without a permit, rarely, if ever, issued for Palestinians.
It does not allow any development there while using the occupied land for its illegal settlement activity.
Under the 1995 Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, was divided into three portions — Area A, B and C.
Area C is currently home to 300,000 Palestinians, the vast majority of whom are Bedouins and herding communities who predominantly live in tents, caravans and caves.
Thus, house demolitions, confiscation of the most basic infrastructure and military training exercises are part of everyday reality in the area.
There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
