NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday tore down and confiscated several tents that the Palestinian Red Crescent had erected east of Nablus in order to house families whose houses were demolished by Israeli forces a few days before, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement-related activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that several Israeli military vehicles raided the al-Jawana area between the villages of Tana and Beit Furik Thursday morning and pulled down four tents.

He explained that the tents were donated by the Palestinian Red Crescent Association and had served as temporary dwellings for Palestinian families.

The families used to live in structures made of metal bars and tin sheets in the area, but Israeli forces had demolished those structures last week.

Daghlas added that Israeli soldiers delivered demolition orders to other residents on behalf of the Israeli Civil Administration. In addition, a number of agricultural tractors were confiscated.

A spokesperson for the civil administration could not be reached for 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.

Like the bully in the sandbox.. Only knows how to destroy anothers work.. Eaiser to demolish, than to build... And since the bully never builds, he gets very good at demolishing... Repulsive.. Perverted society...

Israel should tear down the apartheids/separation wall instead of teardown tents of poor displaced people by the same Israel.
