Af.M | DOP -

Israeli occupation bulldozers demolished Wednesday 14 September 2022, two agricultural rooms, and uprooted olive trees in the village of Rojib, east of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

Local media sources reported that Israeli occupation forces accompanied by a bulldozer broke into the “Al-Dahhak” village and tore down two Palestinian-owned agricultural rooms, turning them into rubbles.

IOF uprooted 20 olive trees, belonging to the Palestinian citizens Hilal Rajabeh and Waheeb Abu Eisha.

In a related incident, Israeli occupation bulldozers demolished a Palestinian home belonging to the Abu Akl family in the city of Lod in 1948-occupied Palestinian lands, under the pretext of building without an Israeli-issued permit.

Punitive demolitions are a form of collective punishment practiced by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians and as such are illegal under international law.

The Israeli occupation has demolished 8746 Palestinian-owned structures and damaged 1559 homes since 2009, displacing 13,000 people and affecting 152,000 others, according to OCHA.
