HEBRON, September 2, 2014 (WAFA) – Israeli army demolished on Tuesday part of a dairy factory in Hebron City, in addition to agricultural structures to the south of Nablus, according to local and security sources.

Security sources told WAFA that an Israeli army force, accompanied by heavy machinery, arrived in the early morning in Bir Haram ar-Rami area, north of the city of Hebron, and proceeded to demolish the administrative section of the Rayyan dairy factory, which is a subsidiary of an Islamic charity group.

The Israeli authorities, a few months ago, grabbed equipment belonging to the factory under the pretext of building without a permit and that part of the factory is located in Area C – under full Israeli control, an area where Israel rarely issues construction permits for Palestinian individuals and businesses.

Governor of Hebron, Kamal Hamid, condemned the demolition and described it as a ‘racial’ act aimed at destroying the achievements of the Palestinian people. He called upon international organizations to promptly intervene to stop these practices which constitute a collective punishment, which violates all international norms and conventions.

Meanwhile in the village of Luban ash-Sharkiya, to the south of Nablus, Israeli forces stormed the village and demolished two barracks belonging to a local resident.

WAFA correspondent said the forces closed Nablus-Ramallah highway, adjacent to the village, and proceeded to demolish the two barracks which are the property of two brothers in the village.
