On Wednesday morning, Israeli forces demolished tents belonging to Palestinians in the northern Jordan Valley, bulldozed land in the central West Bank governorate of Salfit, and seized computers and $20,000 in cash from a Palestinian rental car company in Nablus.
Local sources told Palestinian government news wire Wafa that Israeli bulldozers demolished houses and tents in the villages of al-Hemma and Kardala. The demolitions were ongoing at the time of writing.
In Salfit, the farmer Hani Mohammed Amer called on Israel to stop bulldozing his land and uprooting the roughly 100 olive trees planted in the area Israeli forces plan to use to build the separation wall. Amer said that the wall would designate more land for the nearby illegal settlements of Azon Atma and Masha.
“I was surprised in the morning when I went to my land in Bayarrat al-Shalla area and I found the bulldozers uprooting my trees,” he said. Amer called on human rights organizations in Palestine to get involved.
In Nablus, Israeli troops raided a rental car company belonging to Wa’el al-Fattouh and seized computers, bank checks, customer applications, and $20,000 in cash.
Eyewitnesses said the forces also raided a building near the company, searched several nearby houses, and entered the old building of the Palestinian financial market in the al-Qaser Hotel.
