The Israeli army has demolished one house in the West Bank city of Hebron on
Wednesday morning. Army bulldozers and vehicles stormed Wadi Al Suman
neighborhood in the city, closed all the streets leading to it and
demolished the house of Ishak Al Madani, the army claimed that the house
was built without permit.
Al Madani told the Palestinian News Agency WAFA that Israeli army handed him a military order to demolish his house three months ago. However, he appealed to the Israeli supreme court and he won a preventive court ruling to cease the demolition. However, regardless of the court ruling, the army unlawfully demolished the house.
This is the second time that the army levels a house in Wadi Al Suman neighborhood despite a court ruling demanding a freeze of the demolition.
Israel has been unlawfully demolishing Palestinian houses in the West Bank since 1967. Sometimes houses are demolished as a collective punishment when a family member is involved in attacks against the Israeli army.
According to statistics bty the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolition, (ICAHD), Israel has demolished mroe than 3000 houses since September 2000.
