The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that the soldiers demolished a home built in 1967, residential structures, and two barns in Khirbit Ibzeeq, northeast of Tubas.
Soldiers also demolished a number of residential structures which had been rebuilt after being previously destroyed by the army.
Furthermore, the army also destroyed a solar cell used for generating electricity, in a small village close to Aqraba nearby town.
Several residential and agricultural structures have also been demolished in Khirbit Yezra village, east of Tubas.
The area is subject to dozens of Israeli military violations, including ongoing destruction of property belonging to local villagers and shepherds, for the benefit of Israel’s illegitimate settlements and its military camps.
The army also repeatedly uses those areas for military drills, using live ammunition and explosives.
Earlier on Wednesday, a Palestinian child was seriously injured after an unexploded bomb, dropped by the army during training, exploded in his hands in the Jordan Valley.
In February of last year, a Palestinian child was killed and three other children were injured, in two separate incidents, when un-exploded Israeli military bombs detonated near them, in northern Gaza.
In November of 2012, a five-year old Palestinian child suffered head injuries and died of his wounds, in a similar incident which took place in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
Earlier the same month, three children, between the ages of three and five, were seriously injured when an explosive device left by the Israeli army detonated near them in the town of Beit Hanoun, in northern Gaza.
In related news, a group of Israeli settlers uprooted more than 800 olive saplings in Sinjel village, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Head of the Sinjel Village Council, Ayyoub Sweid, said that the settlers stole the uprooted saplings.
He added that the saplings were planted by the residents on 200 Dunams (49.42 Acres) of Palestinian orchards as part of a project funded by the International Red Cross.
