On Thursday morning, Israeli soldiers demolished a Palestinian home in Anata town, northeast of the occupied capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.
Media sources said the soldiers invaded the al-Baq’an neighborhood in the town after surrounding it before forcing the Palestinians out of their property.
They added that the soldiers demolished a home, consisting of two flats, owned by Raed Hajjaj Fheidat, allegedly for being built without a permit.
It is worth mentioning that the soldiers also demolished a room that was part of a building destroyed by the soldiers a month ago.
On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers demolished four residential sheds in Shu’ab al-Batem village, south of Hebron, in the West Bank’s southern part.
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 under various allegations meant to prevent the expansion of Palestinian towns and neighborhoods.
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.”
