On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers invaded the town of Tuqu, east of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, demolished an under-construction home and two sheds, and uprooted 50 trees.

Mousa Sha’er, the Mayor of Tuqu, said the soldiers demolished a 150 square/meter under-construction home in the Al-Halqoum area in the town.

Sha’er added that the army claimed the home, owned by Mohammad Shouriyya, was built without a permit from the so-called “Civil Administration Office,” the administrative branch of the illegal Israeli occupation.

The soldiers also demolished two agricultural sheds and uprooted at least fifty olive trees in the town before withdrawing.
