The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished, on Wednesday, part of a Palestinian-owned home in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal al-Mokabber, local sources said.

Israeli bulldozers invaded Jabal al-Mokabber and demolished part of the home belonging to Mr. Iyad Fatafta, a Palestinian citizen, under the pretext that it had been built without an Israeli permit.

Despite an Israeli court order to postpone the demolition until further proceedings, Fatafta said, the occupation authorities proceeded with the demolition.

In addition, on Wednesday, the Israeli occupation authorities ordered three Palestinian families to stop construction on their homes in Nabi Elias village, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, according to local sources.

Sources told WAFA Palestinian News Agency that the military claimed the homes were being built without an Israeli construction permit.
