In video - Palestinian demolishes own building in Deir al-Asad

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian from the Deir al-Asad town in northern Israel was forced to demolish his own building, on Saturday, upon order by the Israeli authorities.

Ibrahim Ali Badran reported that he was forced to demolish a commercial building he owns to avoid the high demolition costs imposed upon him by Israel if Israel carries out the demolition instead.

Badran pointed out that the building consists of two floors.

He added that he had previously attempted to prevent the demolition through all possible legal means.

Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, who number between 500,000 and 600,000, receive four times as many housing units as Palestinian citizens Israel, the group added.

Palestinian communities in Israel and occupied East Jerusalem have long been targeted by discriminatory Israeli policies, whether through “divide and conquer” tactics, attempts at forcibly displacing Bedouin communities, and what has been denounced as a policy of "Judaization" of Jerusalem and Israel at the expense of other religious communities.
