Israeli forces demolished an under-construction Palestinian home in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus on Thursday.

Member of the People’s Party’s politburo Nasr Abu Jeish said that Israeli military vehicles and a bulldozer raided the town of Beit Dajan on Thursday morning and began demolishing a house belonging to Riya Hussein Ali Raja.

Israeli forces allegedly claimed the 100 square-meter house was being constructed with difficult-to-obtain Israeli-issued building permits.

According to the Applied Research Institute -- Jerusalem (ARIJ), 62 percent of the total area of Beit Dajan is classified as ‘Area C’, the more than 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli security and civilian control.

In Area C, Palestinian construction and land management is prohibited unless through consent or authorization by the Israeli Civil Administration.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.

Meanwhile, the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory are more easily given building permits and allowed to expand their homes and properties, despite living in settlements that violate international law.
