Early January, The Occupation army commander in West Bank  delivered a demolition notice to family of prisoner Mohammed Qubha,  the occupation refused the petition submitted by the family with the help of a Legal Aid organization “Our Right”  , and  approved the demolition within 7 days.

It should be marked that the order was issued in reference to the British Emergency Law of year 1945, taking into consideration that this law was abolished.

According to article 119 of that law, “Confiscation” of property means that the owner can not re-build structures in case of demolition. Land Research Center sees Israeli practices and measures as a collective punishment against the families of martyrs and prisoners.  The occupation seeks to traumatize and humiliate Palestinian families through such practices.

The Israeli government claims such orders to be deterrent for Palestinians who carry out stabbing attacks. Such attacks come in response for colonists’ attacks on Palestinians, the latest of which was represented in torching a family alive, not mentioning running over kids and women,  attacks on trees (torching , cutting down, robbing) and lands confiscation
