Israeli forces demolished, on Thursday, residential structures belonging to Palestinian Bedouins in the village of Deir Nidham, northwest of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.
It added that the soldiers isolated and closed off the al-Husa area, and declared it a ‘closed military zone’ before bulldozers proceeded to demolish residential structures and shacks.
Article 17 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states;
1. Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.
2. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.
On Wednesday, Israeli forces imposed stop-work orders for five Palestinian-owned structures in Marda village, north of Salfit in the northern occupied West Bank.
The under-construction buildings include a mosque, three houses, and a commercial store, under the pretext that they are built in ‘Area C’ which is under full Israeli civil and military control.
