Israeli soldiers invaded, Thursday, Marj an-Na’ja village, north of Jericho in the occupied West Bank, and demolished a grocery store.
The WAFA Palestinian News Agency said the soldiers demolished the store, and then told the owner that the reason behind the destruction is that it was built without a permit from the Israeli side.
Last month, the army demolished two homes in Duyuk at-Tihta village, west of Jericho, under the same pretenses.
Israel’s policies in the Jordan Valley and the West Bank’s Plains prevent, and seriously limit, the Palestinian constructions of homes and other property on their own lands, so that it can continue to build and expand its illegal colonies, in direct violation of International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
The army also uses large areas of lands in the occupied West Bank, especially in the Jordan Valley, Hebron and the Northern Plains, for live fire military training, including the use of explosives and bombs.
In many incidents, Palestinian families are ordered to leave their communities during the military drills, and later return after the army is done with its live-fire training, including the use of explosives, which are sometimes left behind, leading to casualties, including fatalities.
