Israel regime forces have demolished three homes in the al-Arrub refugee camp in the West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron), as the regime continues its aggressions against Palestinians.

A local official said on Wednesday that Israeli bulldozers, along with a large military force, entered the al-Bassah area of the camp and razed the homes to the ground.

The official added that the camp occupants are afraid that many more homes would be flattened.

According to the Israeli rights organization, B’Tselem, the Tel Aviv regime demolished over 1,000 homes and other structures in the occupied West Bank between 1999 to 2004.

Also on Wednesday, Israeli tanks and bulldozers conducted an incursion into the Beit Hanoun town in the north of the Gaza Strip, locals said.

The attack came days after Israeli forces carried out an incursion into eastern areas of Khan Yunis, located in the southern part of the coastal enclave.

On April 11, Israeli forces reportedly entered the area with eight military tractors, jeeps, and four Merkava tanks.

Gaza has been blockaded by Israel since June 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.
