Israel demolishes Palestinian family home in West Bank

November 16, 2017 Off By Web Desk

Ramallah Israeli occupation forces demolished on Thursday a Palestinian house in the West Bank village of Ni’lin, west of Ramallah, and notified another that it will also be demolished because they were built without permits.

According to local sources, the army used bulldozer to level the house owned by Mohammad Adel Awad leaving his seven-member family homeless. The family was able to salvage some of its furniture before the demolition started.

Also under the pretext of building without a permit, another demolition order was handed to the owner of a neighboring house.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C, which accounts for more than 60 percent of the occupied West Bank, are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally, and placing them under the constant risk of demolitions at the hands of the occupation forces.
