On Monday, Israeli soldiers demolished a Palestinian house and a hothouse, in Jabal al-Mokabber and the al-Isawiya towns, in occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Local sources said the soldiers invaded Jabal al-Mokabber before demolishing the house of Omar Fahed Ja’afra, allegedly for being built without a permit.

During the demolition, the soldiers attacked several Palestinians and abducted two young men before moving them to an unknown destination.

The soldiers also invaded the al-Isawiya town in Jerusalem and demolished a hothouse owned by Rafat Tareq.

While Israel continues to build and expand its illegal colonies, Palestinian communities, and towns, in occupied Jerusalem, and various areas in the occupied West Bank, continue to be denied the right to build homes and property.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
