One of the Victims, Citizen Ya’coub ‘Antary said that he found military notices hanged on the walls of three facilities in May 25th 2021, under the title “removal of a new building” within 96 hours.

Affected Citizen Ya’coub ‘Antari assigned lawyer Lo’ay ‘Arafat from Nazareth who received 45 thousand Shackles to defend the case, and he gave us hope until the last moment that he will manage to freeze the demolition order. However, in Monday June 16th 2021 a massive army force raided the area and targeted three facilities between Nablus- Tulkarm Street, then they closed off the main road and carried out the demolition, which left the owners with a financial loss that reached 600,000 NIS.

To issue these notices, The Occupation Authorities referd to military order (1797) issued in 2018, which targets under construction and uninhabited buildings. The Israeli Occupation carried out mass demolition operations based on this notice, which also deprives Palestinians from their right and chance to submit a petition.
