IOF troops demolish two Palestinian homes in Jerusalem
Israeli occupation policemen on Wednesday escorted and protected municipal bulldozers in occupied Jerusalem while flattening two Palestinian homes for the second time for “lack of construction permit”.
A large number of those policemen encircled the two homes and blocked citizens from approaching. The policemen forcibly evacuated owners of the two homes and their families before damaging water, electricity and TV wires then destroying the buildings.
Legal sources said that around 20,000 Palestinian homes are threatened with demolition by the Israeli occupation authority in occupied Jerusalem at the pretext of lack of legal permit, which is never obtained when asked for.
