Israeli forces raided the eastern and southern parts of the village, and their demolition orders included one for the demolition of an agricultural facility and another for a newly opened road, said Suleiman Dawabsheh, head of the Duma Village Council.

According to Dawabsheh, the occupation authorities claimed the land is "state-owned" property, but it is privately owned by Palestinians, who have documents to prove ownership, Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

The Palestinian Ministry of Local Government stated that the Israeli orders are illegal and in violation of international norms and conventions, and it considers the Israeli action "a confiscation of the Palestinians' right to cultivate their land, build and live on it, which is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
