OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli bulldozers demolished on Tuesday morning house of Palestinian family in the occupied city of Jerusalem, while the Jerusalem municipality notified 13 citizens to demolish their apartments in the city.
Bulldozers belonging to the Jerusalem Municipality demolished this morning a house belonging to the family of Ibrahim Kiswani, composed of six members, in al-Achquariya area in the district of Beit Hanina, in north Jerusalem, under the pretext of being built without a permit.
The Israeli occupation forces, accompanied by staff from the Jerusalem municipality, also broke into areas and villages in northeast Jerusalem, and notified to demolish buildings, commercial installations and huts.
For its part, the Information Center in Wadi Hilweh reported in a press statement that the IOF raided the village of Anata, northeast of Jerusalem.
The forces handed over to citizens in Bakaan district demolition notifications of buildings and agricultural as well as commercial installations, while the Civil Administration teams notified the demolition of about twenty houses in the area.
Meanwhile, the occupation authorities handed over to Palestinians from the town of Sebastia, to the northwest of the city of Nablus in the West Bank, notifications to demolish their installations.
Nahed Rizk, one of the Palestinians who received demolition notices, pointed out in a press statement that an Israeli military force, accompanied by staff from the Israeli Construction and Management Committee, stormed Sebastia town today and notified him of the demolition of his restaurant under the pretext of being built without a permit.
He added that the force has also handed over to another citizen notification to demolish his residential building composed of two floors.
Rizk pointed out that the occupation is seeking behind this step to take control of the lands in the area, which is an ancient archaeological area.
Local sources in the Northern Jordan Valley said that the occupation authorities handed demolition and evacuation orders on Tuesday to ten families, from the residents of the areas of Ain al-Hilweh and Hammamet in Wadi al-Maleh.
Aref Daraghmeh, head of Wadi al-Maleh village council, said in a press statement on Tuesday that the new notifications and evacuation orders come within the framework of the policies of displacement and ethnic cleansing pursued by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian Bedouins in the Jordan Valley.
Daraghmeh stressed that the Bedouins refuse to leave and give up their lands.
