Tubas (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces on Sunday morning demolished a new Palestinian-owned house in the village of Al-Aqaba, to the east of Tubas town in the north of the occupied West Bank.
Local sources said that earlier today, Israeli occupation soldiers raided the village of Al-Aqaba and demolished a house under construction, owned by Palestinian resident Ibrahim Taleb, under the pretext of building without a permit.
The soldiers also arrested the brother of the owner of the house and confiscated his vehicle during the same raid of the village.
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 by the occupation authorities.
The occupation authorities also do not allow any development there while using the occupied land for its illegal settlement activities.
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 around 300,000 Palestinians.
Thus, house and structures 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.
