Israeli occupation forces demolished on Wednesday, November 2, three Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank cities of Bethlehem and Jenin.

Local sources reported that heavily armed Israeli forces, accompanied by three bulldozers, invaded Jalboun village, east of occupied Jenin, and demolished two Palestinian homes under the pretext of building without a permit.

The sources added that the Israeli troops demolished a 2-story building under construction owned by the Palestinian Khaled Abu Al-Rub. Meanwhile, the second home was housing five members of the Abu Yusuf family.

In Bethlehem, the Israeli occupation forces raided Al-Walja village and demolished a 120 sqm house owned by Othman Shweiki under the pretext of building without a permit.

According to Palestinian figures published earlier in September, Israeli occupation forces have demolished 233 Palestinian structures until the end of September 2022 in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
