A recent report by the Israel Heritage Preservation Center says 80 percent of ancient sites located in the West Bank are being damaged. Dr. Shay Bar, an archaeologist at Haifa University, has been carrying out a survey in Judea and Samaria for decades, said most of the destruction was due to unsupervised construction and farming in areas controlled by Israel and also the Palestinian Authority. He told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that grave robbers too were devastating ancient sites.
