NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers on Tuesday demolished a mosque and three houses in a Palestinian village south of Nablus, an official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settlement-related activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that over 20 Israeli military vehicles entered Khirbet al-Tawil near the town of Aqraba early Tuesday morning.

Bulldozers immediately began demolishing a mosque and three houses belonging to Osama Anas, Anwar Sidqi Hani, and Muhammad Hani.

The structures were demolished under the pretext that they were built without permits, Daghlas said.

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. Some 250 people have been displaced 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 world will continue to talk, while Israel will continue to do whatever she deems ok in her interest. Israel only obeys one law and thats the one in the bible, thats why she wont compromise an inch of Jerusalem and will also take Bethlehem because it is the birth place of Christ.PUT IT DOWN IF YOU WANT TO, U.N will grant the state of palestine recognition but Israel will still object, and it will spark off the most deadly war in the history of humanity.THIS CRISIS IS MORE OF A RELIGIOUS ONE.

The only thing that doesn't make any sense to me is why anyone in the world wants to destroy a friken well in the middle of the desert. The buildings, maybe but a well. There was a well in the area.
