Israeli army demolishes a Palestinian house south of the West Bank

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Wednesday, the Israeli army demolished a Palestinian house in the south of the occupied West Bank under the pretext of building without a permit.

Eyewitnesses told the Anatolia news agency that an Israeli military force raided the Hijri neighborhood near al-Fawwar refugee camp in Hebron province and started demolishing a two-storey house, claiming that the building was built without a permit in areas classified as C according to the Oslo agreement signed between the PLO and Israel.

Israel bans Palestinians from building in Area C, which it controls.

Under the Oslo II agreement signed between the Palestinian Authority and Israel in 1995, the West Bank was divided into three areas ( A , B and C), the latter representing 61 percent of the West Bank.
