Israeli forces have once again attacked Palestinian property in the occupied West Bank, demolishing two structures in Salfit district.
Abdul Hamid al-Dik, the district governor, said bulldozers escorted by Israeli troops entered Khirbet Susiya on the outskirts of Kafr al-Dik Village on Sunday and destroyed an agricultural storage room belonging to a Palestinian.
In a similar move, Israeli forces raided the village of Haris and demolished a structure used as a car wash, he said.
The Palestinian official said that the demolition was carried out under illegal pretexts in an attempt to pave the way for Israel to expand illegal settlements across the occupied Palestinian territories.
Israeli settlers, mostly armed, regularly attack Palestinian villages and farms and set fire to their mosques, olive groves and other property in the West Bank under the so-called “price tag” policy.
Price tag attacks are acts of vandalism and violence against Palestinians and their property as well as Islamic holy sites by Israeli settlers.
