Israel demolishes house in Central Jordan Valley

Israeli occupation bulldozers early Wednesday demolished a house located in the village of Al-Jiftlik in the Central Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank, a Palestinian official said.

The Palestinian Authority official, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, said in a statement that Israeli bulldozers, and under heavy military protection, demolished a Palestinian- owned house under the pretext it had no permit.

Demolishing of Palestinian houses in Central Jordan Valley is racist and serves settlement purposes, the statement added.
