Israeli military bulldozers demolished at dawn Tuesday parts of a Palestinian home east of occupied Jerusalem under the pretext of being built without Israeli permit.
The house’s owner Musab Shiyoukhi told Quds Press that Israeli bulldozers escorted by Israeli police violently stormed Silwan town and started demolishing parts of his house.
Two rooms, which were built two years ago on an area of 30 meters, were demolished.
Shiyoukhi pointed out that he received a demolition order from the Israeli municipality nearly a year ago.
He said that the real reason behind the demolition order is that his cousin had carried out an anti-occupation attack last October.
Israel continues its demolition policy against houses of slain Palestinians and prisoners who were accused of being involved in anti-occupation attacks although it is prohibited under international law and constitutes collective punishment.
