The demolished Palestinian schools had been built by the EU's West Bank Protection Consortium, a charity organization that includes five international NPO's, the EU's spokesman told Sputnik.
"The EU believes it must economically and socially support the Palestinians living in Zone C and supply them with everything they need to meet their basic human needs, including the right to normal living conditions, family life, private property, education, health and other human rights, as well as their humanitarian needs," the spokesman said.
The representative also noted that the EU continues to discuss with Israel the "planning and zoning in Zone C, as well as humanitarian and development activities carried out by the EU in the region."
Earlier, Israeli forces had confiscated five portable buildings that were donated by the EU to Palestinians in the West Bank region and were used by the latter as classrooms for children. Israeli authorities claimed that the confiscations were conducted because the Palestinians lacked proper building permits.
Local residents said that the Israeli forces arrived at night, without allowing the Palestinian side to protest their actions in court.
