Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday, Sur Baher town, southeast of occupied East Jerusalem, and demolished one home, reportedly for being built without a permit.

Eyewitnesses said a large Israeli military force invaded the town, accompanying personnel of the city council, and besieged the entire area before demolishing a home belonging to Waseem Khaled Ateyya.

The army claims that the demolished property was built without a construction permit. The family filed appeals, but the army went ahead and demolished the property.
