RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers on Tuesday destroyed 15 houses in Palestinian villages west of Ramallah, a Ma'an reporter said.
Early Tuesday, three Israeli bulldozers accompanied by 10 military jeeps raided the Bedouin villages of Ras Karkar and Deir Ammar and started demolishing buildings, reportedly without giving a warning.
Locals said the demolitions were carried out under the pretext of security concerns, due to the fact the villages are located near Israeli settlements.
A spokesman for Israeli Civil Administration could not be reached for comment.
