Israeli forces issue demolition orders for Nablus park

12:00 Nov 19 2013 Burqa

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday issued demolition orders for several structures in a park in the Nablus village of Burqa, a local official said.

Ziyad Masud, a member of the al-Masodiya park rehabilitation committee, told Ma'an that Israeli forces issued demolition orders for two rooms, bathrooms and seats in a building located in the park.

The structures under threat were donated by World Vision, according to Masud, but Burqa village council oversees the project.

Israel has destroyed more than 558 Palestinian properties in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since the beginning of this year, displacing 919 people, according to UNOCHA.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

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.
