OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– A Palestinian man from the Suwar Bahir village east of Jerusalem was forced to tear down part of his own home on Sunday.

Israeli authorities ordered Ramzi Attoun to demolish two rooms on his residence, locals said. They claimed the 80 square meter attachment built in 2008 was constructed without permit.

Authorities warned they would take demolitions into their own hands and fine the landlord 70,000 shekels ($20,000) should he fail to follow orders.

Attoun said he was surprised at receiving the notice after he applied for a building permit. The land is set aside for a street to be used by Jewish settlers.

Meanwhile, five more Palestinian families occupying tents west of Salfit were issued evacuation notices, locals reported.

Army officials passed out the notices to families that have resided and tended livestock in the Al-Mahajiz area for over eight years.

They have no other residence.
