JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished a steel structure and soldiers confiscated 200 tons of wood in northern West Bank villages early Monday, Palestinian security sources said.

The sources told Ma'an that several Israeli vehicles stormed the village of Bartaa al-Sharqiya west of Jenin and demolished a steel structure owned by Muhammad Ibrahim Qabaha.

Israeli forces also ransacked a garage owned by local resident Walid Wakid.

Meanwhile, in the nearby village of Zabda, Israeli troops raided a charcoal factory belonging to Nour and Khaled Ibrahim Amarnah and confiscated 200 tons of wood.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. It has demolished at least 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures since occupying the West Bank in 1967, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

Israel destroyed more than 663 Palestinian properties in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2013, displacing 1,101 people, according to UNOCHA. Around 241 more people have been displaced just since the beginning of 2014.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

The "most moral army in the world" steals people's livelihoods. Nice!

Destroying a charcoal factory and stealing 200 tons of wood has no security interest whatsoever. It is only for cruelty. Period.
