Israeli soldiers invaded, Tuesday, Wad al-A’war area, south of Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, and demolished a Palestinian home.
Rateb Jabour, the coordinator of the Popular and National Committees in southern West Bank, said the soldiers demolished a home, consisting of two rooms, owned by Bilal al-Ajlouni.
Jabour added that the army claimed the property, located in Area C of the West Bank, was not licensed by the “Civil Administration Office,” the administrative branch of Israel’s illegal occupation.
The occupied West Bank was divided into three areas – A, B, and C – as part of the Oslo Accords, signed by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Israel, in 1993 and 1995.
The agreements led to the establishment of the Palestinian Authority (PA), which was granted limited powers of governance in Areas A and B.
However, the outcomes of the Oslo Accords have instead left Israel in complete control of the Palestinian economy, as well as its civil and security matters, in more than 60 percent of the West Bank, designated as Area C.
Despite granting the PA control over administrative and internal security matters in parts of the West Bank, Israel maintains military control over the entire area.
