BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– Israeli bulldozers under military protection demolished the house of a Palestinian citizen called Daoud Shawawrah in Nu’man village, east of Bethlehem, which is encircled by the apartheid wall from all directions.

Eyewitnesses said that the demolition took place under protection from the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) who forced the family inside the house to evacuate within 15 minutes, adding that the house was inhabited by its residents for 12 years, and now they became homeless.

They affirmed that the family and their neighbors clashed with the Israeli troops and threw stones at them, but the troops responded firing tear gas grenades and physically attacked them.

The clashes resulted in the injury of a young man from Shawawrah family, where he was seen bleeding from his face. The troops detained him and took him to an unknown destination.
