Israeli forces, early Monday, demolished a Palestinian house in Deir Ballut town, to the west of Salfit, as well as two residential structures and a livestock barn in Adh-Dhahiriya town, to the south of Hebron.

Israeli forces, escorting two bulldozers, raided the town, where they demolished a Palestinian house under construction, and belonging to ‘Adnan ‘Abdullah in the Khallet Qasul locality, to the south of Deir Ballut.

This was the second time that ‘Abduallah’s house has been demolished. It was demolished about a year and a half ago in the same spot, in Khallet Qasul, a locality in Area C which contains over 60 Palestinian houses and is considered one of the areas which regularly receives stop-construction and demolition notices.

Local media reported on ‘Abdullah as saying that, although he submitted proper building permits, he was served a notice two months ago to demolish his house, prompting him to leave no stone unturned in order to halt the implementation of this notice, but to no avail.

Furthermore, Israeli forces demolished two residential structures and a livestock barn in Adh-Dhahiriya village of Ar-Rahwa.

Israeli soldiers again escorted a bulldozer, raiding the village, where they proceeded to demolish two residential structures and a livestock barn belonging to Farhan As-Samamra, displacing 24 people.

Meanwhile, forces served demolition notices for several Palestinian houses near al-Hamra permanent military checkpoint, on Road 57, which is controlled by Israeli authorities.

All Palestinians whose houses are located to the north of the checkpoint were handed notices, giving them only 10 days to evict their homes as a prelude to demolition.
