Israel Brings Down Palestinians’ Tents

Israel has leveled tents used by Palestinians as their homes in the northern West Bank in defiance of global calls for halting the destruction of Palestinian shelters.

Israeli soldiers entered al-Farisiya village on Monday morning and ordered the residents away before knocking the structures down, the Ma’an news agency reported.

Tel Aviv said the military knocked down nine agricultural structures because they were put up without permits.

Last week, Israel destroyed one Palestinian home and two unfinished houses along with parts of a factory in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The resumption of demolition work came as the international community has made repeated calls for an end to Israeli demolitions, describing the move as illegal under international law.

The European Union strongly condemned Israel for evicting Palestinians and destroying their homes in East al-Quds.
