The Israeli army bulldozers demolished a Palestinian house in Shu'fat refugee camp in Jerusalem city on Wednesday midday.

Israeli soldiers and police surrounded the camp and closed it totally while two Israeli army bulldozers demolished the house of Tayesser Al Julani.  Eyewitnesses reported that troops forced the family away from the houses and leveled it without allowing the family members to remove their belongings out of the house.

Palestinian youth from the camp clashed with the Israeli soldier who fired tear gas and sound bombs at them.  No injuries were reported.

The Israeli authorities said that the house was built without building permits.  The Israeli state never gave out any building permits to Palestinian residents of the camp, while at the same time building Israeli settlement blocks there for Israeli Jewish residents only, on lands confiscated from residents of Shu'fat refugee camp, residents of the camp reported.
