Israeli soldiers guarding home demolition (Palestine TV)

The Israeli municipality of Jerusalem demolished, on Thursday, a house belonging to a Palestinian citizen in the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, under the pretext of being built without an Israeli permit, the home owner said.

Homeowner, Iyad Shweiki told WAFA that two days ago, the crews of the Israeli municipality handed him the demolition order, which stated that the family must evacuate the house, where his family of six were living.

The family of six have become homeless due to the Israeli policy of denying building permits to Palestinian citizens, and demolishing of Palestinian homes, while allowing illegal settlements to expand, in violation of International Law.

Also, on Thursday, the Israeli army demolished a caravan in Hebron in which a family of seven Palestinians lived, whom are now homeless.
