On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers invaded Husan village, west of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, and demolished an agricultural room.

Mohammad Sabateen, the head of Husan Village Council, said several army vehicles, including bulldozers, invaded the Ein Al-Balad area of the town before demolishing the room.

Sabateen added that the room is owned by a local farmer, Khalil Atiya Shousha, and was built on his privately owned land.

The Israeli army claimed the room was built without a permit from the so-called “Civil Administration Office,” the administrative branch of the illegal Israeli occupation.

It is worth mentioning that more than two-thirds of Husan is classified as being in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli control, where the occupation bars the Palestinians from building homes and sheds and constantly escalates its violations against the farmers.

On Tuesday, illegal Israeli colonizers bulldozed large areas of Palestinian lands in Qusra, Jaloud, and Qaryout towns, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, to expand a colonialist outpost on stolen lands.

On Tuesday morning, Israeli soldiers demolished sheds and walls in the Al-Jeeb town, northwest of the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Area C constitutes 60% of occupied West Bank lands that fall under Israel’s sovereignty, according to the Oslo agreement signed in 1993 between the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Israeli occupation.

While Israel continues to deny construction permits to the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem, and several parts of Area C of the occupied West Bank, it continues its policies of the illegal construction and expansion of its colonies in direct violation of International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions.

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, and 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.”
