Israeli forces demolished, on Monday, a Palestinian-owned apartment building in the town of Al-Za’im, east of occupied Jerusalem.

Israeli forces invaded the town of Al-Za’im, surrounded the four-storey building and blocked the owner, Mahmoud Abu Al-Hawa, and other local residents from reaching the area.

Three excavators chipped away at the brick of the apartment building, which consists of four floors, each of which is 360 square meters.
