On Wednesday, many Israeli military vehicles, including bulldozers, invaded the Al-Baq’an neighborhood in Anata town, east of the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank, before demolishing several buildings and structures.

Media sources said the army invaded the town approximately at five at dawn before demolishing and destroying homes, commercial structures, and a car parts shop.

The sources added that the soldiers demolished 13 structures, some used for commercial and residential purposes, in addition to barns, a farm, an under-construction home, a social hall used by the local Gheith family, and an old house owned by Palestinians from Hamdan family.

The demolished Hamdan family home, owned by Mohammad Zakariyya Hamdan, was a two-story building.

The soldiers also demolished a two-story home and social hall owned by the Gheith family.

Furthermore, the soldiers demolished a carwash facility and rental storage units owned by Ashraf Odah, a wall and shed owned by Mahmoud Mousa Hamdan, in addition to a parking lot, a garage, and parking spaces for renters owned by Wahid Kayali.

While Israel continues to build and expand its illegal colonies, Palestinian communities, and towns, in occupied Jerusalem, and various areas in the occupied West Bank, continue to be denied the right to build homes and property, under various allegations meant to prevent the expansion of Palestinian towns and neighborhoods.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
