In a Monday statement, Hezbollah said Israel’s destruction of Palestinian homes in the village of Sur Baher is aimed at expelling the Palestinians from their land and expanding the settlements built on occupied land.
Bulldozers accompanied by hundreds of Israeli police and soldiers moved into Sur Baher on Monday.
The demolition is the latest round of protracted wrangling over the future of al-Quds, home to more than 300,000 Palestinians.
The Lebanese resistance movement further criticized certain Persian Gulf littoral states for rushing towards normalization with Israel, according to Press TV.
It said a US-led conference held in Bahrain last month to rally support for US President Donald Trump’s controversial proposal for “peace” between the Israeli regime and Palestinians amounts to the normalization of Arab ties with the Tel Aviv regime.
The statement also denounced a first ever public meeting between Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifah and his Israeli counterpart Israel Katz in Washington last week, saying it is further proof of Arab normalization with Israel.
