NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) escorted huge military bulldozers that razed the Palestinian Khirbat Tana village east of Nablus city for the fifth consecutive time, locals reported.

They said that the IOF bulldozers started at an early morning hour on Sunday in destroying tents, tin houses, and animal pens, which were built by the citizens following the last demolition ten days earlier at the pretext of building without permit.

Citizens said that the IOF soldiers “exploited the stormy, rainy day to demolish our homes to force us to leave”, affirming that they would not leave their homes and village and would construct them every time they were destroyed.

Tana established over an area of 2000 dunums is only one kilometer away from the Jewish settlement of Mekhora, which was established in 1969 on 10,000 dunums of land seized from the nearby town of Beit Furik east of Nablus.
