Israeli authorities bulldozed "Freedom Road" in the northern West Bank district of Salfit for the second time on Thursday.
Freedom Road was funded by the Palestinian Authority, and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The project was part of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad's plan to build institutions and infrastructure for a future Palestinian state.
The road allowed Palestinian families to access their homes, schools, land and health clinics.
Fayyad inaugurated the road in September 2010, but Israel's military destroyed it in November, while the prime minister was abroad.
Under Fayyad's supervision the municipality rebuilt the road, but Israeli bulldozers arrived in the area Thursday and destroyed it again.'
