Regulation 119(1) reads:
"A Military Commander may by order direct the forfeiture to the Government of Palestine of any house, structure or land from which he has reason to suspect that any firearm has been illegally discharged, or any bomb, grenade or explosive or incendiary article illegally thrown, detonated, exploded or otherwise discharged or of any house, structure or land situated in any area, town village, quarter or street the inhabitants or some of the inhabitants of which he is satisfied have committed or attempted to commit, or abetted the commission of, or been accessories after the fact to the commission of an offence against these Regulations involving violence or intimidation or any Military Court offence; and when any house, structure or land is forfeited as aforesaid, the Military Commander may destroy the house or structure or anything in or on the house, the structure or the land."
Are you horrified by the human rights violation by Israel represented above? Well, you shouldn't be. That regulation is from the British Occupation of Mandatory Palestine - not Israeli.
