Israel delivers demolition notice to Palestinian home near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces delivered a demolition notice, on Sunday, in Beit Taamar village, east of the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem.

According to local sources, heavily armed Israeli forces stormed the village and raided Nayef Hassan Zawahra’s family home, handing him a demolition notice concerning the imminent demolition of his home.

The notice mentioned that the demolition would be carried out under the pretext that it was built without the nearly-impossible to obtain Israeli permit.

Sources pointed out that ten family members live in the home, which measures 100-square-meters and was built a year ago.

Israel uses the pretext of building without a permit to carry out demolitions of Palestinian-owned homes on a regular basis.

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.
