Days of Palestine – Bethlehem
Israeli occupation authorities today demolished three agricultural rooms in Beit Ta`mar village, east of Bethlehem.
Director of the Anti-Wall and Settlement Committee in Bethlehem district, Hassan Breija, said that Israeli forces escorted a bulldozer into the village, where the heavy machinery tore down three agricultural rooms belonging to the Mhaimeed family purportedly for being built without licenses.
Israeli refuses to permit virtually any Palestinian construction in Area C, which constitutes 60 percent of the occupied West Bank and falls under full Israeli military rule, forcing residents to build without obtaining rarely-granted permits to provide shelters for their families.
According to a report by the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, the Israeli High Court could be liable for war crimes for their policies that led to the dispossession of Palestinians from their properties in Area C of the West Bank.
