AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Israeli occupation army on Tuesday demolished four Palestinian stores under construction in Deir Qaddis town, west of Ramallah.
According to local sources, bulldozers escorted by soldiers knocked down the stores which belong to a Palestinian citizen.
The stores’ owner, Ayman Sutaih, received a military demolition notice last June claiming that his property was located near the fence of a Jewish settlement.
Last May, owners of 10 homes in Deir Qaddis and Ni’lin towns received similar demolition notices, although they have legal construction permits from the Palestinian Authority.
In a separate incident, the Israeli army’s civil administration on Monday dismantled and seized some rooms and premises of al-Maleh School in Wadi al-Maleh village in the northern Jordan Valley.
Local residents reported that Israeli forces cordoned off the area, dismantled two prefabricated rooms used as classrooms, removed other structures and playground equipment in the school yard and loaded everything into trucks.
On the same day, the Israeli army delivered stop-work orders against 12 homes in Duma village, south of Nablus.
The Israeli army justified the measure by claiming the Palestinian homes are located in Area C of the West Bank.
