Nablus – Ma’an – An Israeli military bulldozer demolished a gas station, a grocery store, and a cargo container in the northern West Bank village of Qusra south of the city of Nablus on Wednesday.

Palestinian sources told Ma’an that more than 20 Israeli military jeeps escorted a bulldozer into the village, which proceeded to demolish the structures one kilometer away from Israeli settlement Magdolin.

The owner of the demolished buildings, 30-year-old Mu’tasim Uda, said he received the latest demolition order from Israeli authorities a year ago. He estimated his loss to be about 120,000 Israeli shekels (31,000 US dollars). He explained that he recently stopped operating the gas station, but all the facility’s equipment was still there when the demolition crew arrived.

Uda said Israeli forces used to warn him that stones were pelted at Israeli vehicles by Palestinian youths who used to hide in the gas station area.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official charged with monitoring settlement activities in the northern West Bank, condemned the demolition and appealed to the international community to intervene and stop Israeli policies aimed at displacing the Palestinians from their own lands.
