HEBRON (Ma'an) -- The PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday condemned Israel's decision to demolish a Palestinian village in Hebron.

On June 12, Israeli forces handed Susiya -- which is flanked by an Israeli settlement of the same name -- demolition orders for each of its 50 buildings, a week after Israeli authorities agreed to halt all construction in the area in response to a petition filed by a settler group.

As well as homes, Israel plans to a health clinic, social center and solar energy generator, the ministry said in a statement, adding that 350 people will be made homeless.

The ministry urged the Quartet - the US, EU, Russia and UN -- to take action to stop Israel's confiscation of land and to hold Israel accountable for destroying any opportunity for peace and negotiations.

Susiya lies in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full Israel civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords.

On June 15, the EU called on Israel to meet its obligations to Palestinians living under Israeli military control in the occupied West Bank "including halting forced transfer of population and demolition of Palestinian housing and infrastructure, simplifying administrative procedures to obtain building permits, ensuring access to water and addressing humanitarian needs."

Israel demolishes caves "built without a permit" hundreds of years before the state of Israel was established. Do some research.

Susiya lies in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full
Israel civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords, and
those that received the demolition orders for each of its 50 buildings,
knowingly built on land without getting permits for construction,
and possibly without even proving ownership of the Land !!!

The nomadic days of "roaming freely with flocks" don't have to be over, but the days of expectating to own/build on "once roamed" lands are definitely over, and "the cluster of 50 breezeblock hovels and tents, erected without building permission" WILL & SHOULD face imminent demolition" !!!
