The supervisory unit of the Civil Administration along with security forces destroyed on Thursday nine illegal structures erected in the Arab village of Tamoun in the northern Jordan Valley. 

In total, five residential tents, three tin buildings and an outhouse were demolished. 

The demolished structures bore the symbol of the European Union, indicating these buildings were funded by the EU like many others erected in Ma'ale Adumim and the Jordan Valley. 

The Foreign Ministry reported at a recent meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the EU is preparing a lawsuit against Israel over the destruction of EU-funded structures. 

Thursday's demolitions appear to be part of a wider crackdown on illegal Arab building in Judea-Samaria, following the destruction of several illegal structures near Hevron on Tuesday

Jerusalem has also gone public in its criticism of the EU's "hypocrisy" in condemning Jewish construction in Judea-Samaria, while simultaneously trying to expand existing Palestinian villages.  

Israeli officials slammed the EU's actions on Army Radio Thursday morning, asserting, "You come and complain about our unilateral steps to determine facts on the ground? Here you're doing the exact same thing on the Palestinian side."
