OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority’s municipality bulldozers razed a Palestinian house and a Stable in Beit Hanina, in occupied Jerusalem.

Owner of the house Sufyan Taha said in a press release on Monday that the Israeli municipality teams told him that the land was originally owned by a West Banker and thus would be considered as land for the absentees and confiscated.

Taha said that he bought the land from a woman living in Beit Hanina, but carrying a residence in the West Bank, in 1998 and in 2000 he built the house and the Stable.

The man said that the demolition progressed despite the fact that the court ordered only the evacuation of the land.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces escorted staffers of the civil administration in serving demolition notices to a number of citizens in Beit Ola village to the west of Al-Khalil on Monday.

The village’s popular committee against the segregation wall said in a press statement that the notifications stipulated the destruction of three water wells and tanks mainly used for irrigation and domestic purposes.

The committee said that the IOA was escalating harassment of Palestinian farmers living and working near the separation wall, urging international intervention to halt Israeli persecution.
