Israeli occupation bulldozers demolish Wednesday, 2 February 2023 two Palestinian houses in the occupied West Bank village of Duma, south of Nablus.
A large force of Israeli occupation troops accompanied by a military bulldozer invaded the village of Duma and demolished a 160 square meters home owned by the Palestinian citizen Muhammad Ali from Anata in occupied Jerusalem, reported Suleiman Dawabsha, the head of the village council.
He added, Israeli military bulldozers also leveled a 200 square meters home belonging to the Palestinian man Mustafa Khaled Malihat from the village of Jaba in Jenin under the pretext of building without a permit in Area C, leaving 15 members including children homeless.
Israeli occupation is trying in various ways to forcibly displace Palestinians from their own lands and demolish their homes in favor of settlement expansion using pretexts most notably building without a permit.
During the first month of 2023, Israeli occupation demolished 130 Palestinian-owned structures in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, according to the United Nations Organization for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OCHA).
The organization explained that most of the demolitions were carried out under the pretext of lacking a building permit, noting that “it is almost impossible for Palestinians to obtain such or that permit.”
