Israel to Demolish Palestinian Houses, Sheds, Electricity Line in Nablus Village

Israeli forces Thursday delivered demolition notices for a number of Palestinian houses, sheds and an electricity grid in Duma village, south of Nablus, said a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors Israeli settlement construction in northern West Bank, said that Israeli forces delivered demolition notices for three houses and two sheds in the Duma locality of Abu Safi.

He noted that the three houses slated for demolition include a two-storey house belonging to the Murar family, a three-storey house belonging to Muhammad Sarayta and a two-storey house belonging to Sufyan Dawabsheh.

In addition to the planned demolition of the houses and sheds, forces issued demolition notice for a local one-kilometer-long electricity line and a stop-construction notice for a 600-meter-long agricultural road.

Israel forces intend to demolish the Palestinian structures and the electricity grid as well as stop the construction of the road under the pretext of being located in an area classified as C.

“Israeli occupation authorities intends to displace Palestinians from that locality and replace them with ]Jewish[ settlers,” explained Daghlas.

He also noted that the sheds planned to be demolished belong to Abdul-Halim Dawabsheh and a member of the Karshan family, while the electricity grid belongs to Ahmad Dawabsheh.
