It should be marked that the Israeli Occupation Forces demolished the following structures:

  1. Agricultural residence: it is a metal slaps caravan established in 2008. With an area of 50m2, the structure was home to Raed's eight member family including six children.
  2. A house foundation: it was established in 2009 on the hope a house would be constructed there. The foundation totals 50m2.
  3. A barn: a 40m2 structure made of cement bricks that was used to shelter sheep.
  4. Water well: dug in stone in 2007, the well accumulates 80m3 of water.
  5. The Israeli Occupation Forces ravaged and damaged construction materials ( cement bricks and sand) to force the citizen not to use the materials again.

It should be marked that Israeli occupation authorities served on January 2012 a stop-work order on Raed's structures on the claim of "unlicensed construction". It is when Raed sought help from Anti-Wall and Settlement Commission to follow up on his case in Israeli courts. The citizen also applied to obtain a building license from Israel Supreme Planning Council but it was for no avail.
