Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolishes a Palestinian-owned house in occupied East section

Bulldozers from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem today demolished a Palestinian-owned house in the occupied section of the city under the pretext of construction without a permit, according to local sources.

They said that the bulldozers began in the morning tearing down a two-story house owned by the Tawil family in Silwan neighborhood.

Israeli police, providing protection to the municipality staff, closed off the area of the house and prevented people from reaching it as the bulldozers proceeded to demolish the house.

Palestinians in the city are forced to build on their lands without a permit because getting one is an almost impossible task from a far-right Israeli municipality that openly discriminates against the city’s 350,000 indigenous Palestinian population and favors settling it with Jews.
