Israeli occupation forces Tuesday morning have flattened a residential building that’s under construction, and consists of 4 stories in Wadi Al-Joz neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, under the pretext of having no building permit.
Media sources said that Israeli bulldozers began the demolition at 5 AM.
Soldiers blocked all the roads to the building and blocked the people from entering the site during the process.
Two days earlier, on Sunday night Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian’s home in Kafr Kanna village, occupied Galilee, under the same pretext.
According to report by OCHA titled Fragmented Lives, In East Jerusalem, 208 Palestinians were displaced and 98 structures demolished. Residents of the area are at risk of displacement due to home demolitions, inability to build, forced eviction and takeover of their property by settler organizations.
Report also showed that 1,000 Palestinians lost their homes due to demolitions carried out by Israeli authorities in Area C of the West Bank, which is under full military control by the Israeli occupation.
