Days of Palestine - Nablus
Israeli occupation authorities notified of its intentions to demolish a Palestinian-owned residential structure and a garden in the town of Sebastia, to the north of the city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to a local official.
Head of Sebastia municipality, Mohammed Azzem, said Israeli forces handed local resident Mahmoud al-Sarawi a notice to demolish his residential structural and garden to the west of the town.
The Israeli authorities’ destruction of Palestinian-owned structures in Area C of the West Bank on grounds of lack of building permits is preceded by the issuance of demolition orders. Together with other policies and practices, the threat of destruction of homes and sources of livelihood represented by these demolition orders, contributes to the generation of a coercive environment pressuring people to leave their areas of residence.
This interactive web-based platform presents a dataset obtained from the Israeli Civil Administration* on all the demolition orders it has issued in Area C since 1988. It enables users to visualize/map such orders based on various indicators, including year, status, governorate, residential area, geographical area, etc.
