Israeli occupation authority razes two Palestinian homes in Hebron

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) on Wednesday morning demolished two homes in Jerusalem and al-Khalil.

According to local sources in Jerusalem, bulldozers escorted by municipal employees and police forces stormed Shuqairat neighborhood in Jabel Mukaber town and knocked down a house belonging to Ghassan Mustafa.

As always, the Israeli municipality justified the measure by claiming that the house was built with no license.  

The Jerusalemites have no choice but to build without licenses because there are no structural maps that respond to the natural increase in their numbers, and for that reason, they are denied house permits.

Since the beginning of the current year, the IOA have razed dozens of Palestinian-owned homes and structures across Jerusalem.

In al-Khalil, Israeli bulldozers escorted by soldiers demolished today a farm home in the village of Beit Marsam in the west of Dura town.

According to local sources, the house was used by a citizen called Mohamed Abdul-Aziz and his family as a summer vacation house.
