The Israeli authorities on Friday forced a Palestinian citizen in Umm al-Fahm in the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories to demolish his own agricultural facility.
According to Arab 48, Abdullah Jabarin was handed an order on Wednesday to demolish his store within 48 hours. Otherwise, the Israeli authorities will carry out the demolition and force him to pay a heavy fine.
Jabarin said that he used the demolished facility, which was built over a year ago, as a storehouse for agricultural equipment.
Palestinians living in the territories occupied since 1948 are often forced to demolish their own homes and buildings under the pretext of lacking Israeli licenses. Those who do not abide by the orders are usually subjected to steep fines.
