HEBRON, The Israeli occupation authorities demolished today a Palestinian-owned house for construction in the Israeli-controlled Area C of the occupied West Bank, according to Rateb Jabour, an activist in the south of the West Bank.
He told WAFA that Israeli soldiers demolished the two-room house in an area known as Wad el-Awar, south of Hebron, alleging it was built without a permit.
International rights organizations said Israel has increased its demolition of Palestinian-owned structures in Area C and occupied East Jerusalem this year. They said over 550 structures were demolished last year under various pretexts, but mainly for construction without a permit.
