Israel demolishes 2 Palestinian-owned homes in Jerusalem

March 13, 2019 1:17 P.M. (Updated: March 14, 2019 10:55 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished two Palestinian-owned homes, on Wednesday, in the al-Qubbeh area, near Israel’s illegal separation wall, south of the central occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem.

Iyad and Adi Edeis, the owners of the two demolished homes, said that staff from the Israeli Civil Administration along with bulldozers stormed the area and demolished the two homes.

The owners said that Israeli authorities did not notify them prior to the demolition.

The owners mentioned that the two homes were built several years ago and that 10 family members lived there.

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.
