On Monday night, Israeli soldiers demolished a residential room in the Farasin village, near Ya’bad town, southwest of Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
Saleh Mohammad Amarna said the soldiers invaded his land and demolished the room without allowing the family to remove their belongings.
Amarna added that he lived in this room with his wife and seven children and stated that the demolition was conducted without a prior warning.
The Palestinians in the area have been subject to constant violations by the soldiers and the colonizers, who constantly attempt to annex more lands illegally.
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”.
