Israel delivers demolition notice to Palestinian home in Bir Ouna

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces delivered a demolition notice for a Palestinian home in Bir Ouna area, in Beit Jala City in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, on Thursday.

Hajj Walid Zreineh told Ma'an that the Israeli authorities delivered him a demolition notice to his brother's house, Ayman Rizq Zreineh and his sons Rizq, Muhammad and Saleh Zreineh, ordering them to demolish the house themselves.

The notices state the the family should carry out the two-story house before April 10th, or the demolition would be carried out by Israel, which would forces the family to pay demolition costs and fines.

Zreineh added that Israeli forces held his brother Ayman as he refused to sign the self-demolition order, adding that the family was forced to pay a 230,000 shekels ($ 63,575) as a bail.
Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem, although 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.

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

According to Palestinians and rights groups, Israel’s overall goal, both in its policies in Area C and Israel’s settlement enterprise, is to depopulate the land of its Palestinian residents and replace them with Jewish Israeli communities in order to manipulate population demographics in all of historic Palestine.
