Israel demolishes house near Jerusalem leaving family homeless

Oct. 29, 2018 2:17 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 30, 2018 3:58 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished a Palestinian mobile home in the Anata town northeast of occupied Jerusalem, on Monday.

Locals said that the demolished home belonged to a local resident, identified as Saleh Muhammad Fuheidat.

Sources added that the reason of demolition was that the house was allegedly built without the nearly impossible-to-obtain Israeli permits.

The demolition came without any previous notices leaving a 7-member family homeless; the Israeli authorities had demolished the family's two houses, in the same area, in early September which forced them to move into the mobile house.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the occupied Palestinian territory issued a report that the month of July recorded the highest number of Palestinian structures Israel has demolished or seized (54), and of Palestinian civilians displaced (97) in the occupied territories, since January 2017.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.

Meanwhile, the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory are more easily given building permits and allowed to expand their homes and properties, despite living in settlements that violate international law.
