(JTA) — France condemned Israel’s demolition of buildings constructed with French funding in a Palestinian village in the West Bank.

The demolition of agricultural installations in Nebi Samuel last week was the third time this year that buildings funded by French humanitarian aid were demolished or confiscated by Israeli authorities, Reuters quoted a French foreign ministry spokesman as saying Thursday.

Among them, in February, was a school.

“We urge Israeli authorities to stop these operations, that are in contravention of international law,” the spokesman said.
