HEBRON, February 26, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli army forces Thursday notified a school and two homes constructed on land categorized as Area C in Hebron, of demolition orders under the pretext of construction without permits, said a local activist.
The Popular Committee Coordinator in Yatta, Rateb al-Jabour said that a military force broke into al-Majaz area to south of Hebron and handed residents of two tinplate homes demolition orders for building without obtaining construction permits.
A number of caravans, which were donated by a European institution in 2015, function as a school for local kids and was also notified of demolition for being constructed without permit.
Israeli authorities did not set a date for the demolitions.
Israel rarely grants construction permits to Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and regularly demolishes structures built without permits. Israeli bulldozers demolished at least 359 Palestinian structures in the West Bank in 2014, according to the Israeli Committee against House Demolitions. The Oslo Accords divided the West Bank into three administrative divisions: Areas A, B and C. The distinct areas were given a different status, according to the amount of self-government the Palestinians would have over it through the Palestinian Authority, until a final status accord would be established.
Area C, under full Israeli civil and security control, constitutes 60% of the West Bank.
