Israel to Demolish Home of a Palestinian Prisoner in Jenin

On Monday, Israeli  authorities were reportedly endorsed a demolition order for the home of Palestinian prisoner, Nathmi Abubaker, 48, from the Y’abad village, south-west of Jenin City, in the West Bank.

The official Palestinian News Agency, WAFA, reported that Israeli occupation authorities jailed Abubaker after they had accused him of causing the death of an Israeli soldier, by throwing a stone on the soldier’s head, during an Israeli invasion of the village on May12.

The accusation by Israeli authorities was totally denied by Abubaker, during a military trial, held later on, WAFA said.

In June 11, Israeli troops were reportedly invaded Ya’bad village again and  an engineering staff, within the invading force, made some measurements for and around the home of Abubaker.

Since early this year, Israeli troops have already demolished four homes of four Palestinian prisoners, in the central West Bank cities of Ramallah, Jenin and Albeira.

The four prisoners were identified as Ahmad Qonbo’ of Jenin, Waleed Hanasha, Yazzan Maghames and Qassam Albarghouthi of Ramallah and Albeira.

Israeli policy of demolition of Palestinian homes has been in place for many decades, now. The homes demolition is viewed by international law as a form of collective punishment that should come to an end.

Noteworthy, no single case of home demolition for an Israeli, indicted of murdering or harming a Palestinian, has been reported, over the past several decades.
