Israel demolishes properties in Tubas ‘without notice’ 28Jun13 June 28, 2013

56713_345x230NABLUS (Ma’an) — Israeli forces on Thursday began demolishing two agricultural properties in the Tammun village in the northern West Bank district of Tubas, locals said.

Israeli military bulldozers entered the al-Bukea area of the village and began the demolition works on the properties belonging to Jamil Odeh and relative Lutfi Odeh, which is on going, locals said.

Jamil was injured after trying to remove personal property from one of the structures, locals said, adding that he was transferred to the Rafidiya Hospital in Nablus for treatment of light wounds.

Locals said they had not received demolition orders and were concerned that the remaining 30 agricultural structures would be torn down imminently.

The village is partly in Area A and Area B, where, under the Oslo Accords, the Palestinian Authority has either exclusive or near-exclusive control over security and civil affairs, including the issuance of building permits.

Locals said they were unclear as to why the properties were razed.

A spokesman for Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories was not immediately aware of the demolitions but that he would look into it.
