the Israeli occupation forces have today notified the citizen Mezleq Habib to demolish his home in the occupied West Bank city of Jericho, Palestinian media said on Wednesday, August 2, 2023.
According to local sources, Israeli forces broke into the house of the citizen Habib in the village of Jiftlik, north of Jericho, searched it, and handed him a notice to demolish it under the pretext of building in Area C without a permit.
The Habib family has been given time to vacate their home until August 16, 2023.
The Israeli occupation uses a variety of tactics to push Palestinians out of their homes and destroy their properties in order to expand illegal settlements on their lands, using many false excuses, the top of which is “building without a permit.
According to a report by OCHA in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Israel demolished, confiscated, or forced Palestinians to tear down 54 buildings in East Jerusalem and West Bank Area C in July only, resulting in the displacement of 66 Palestinians and the loss of nearly 800 livelihoods.
