Another Palestinian house demolished within 24 hours


At dawn today, the Israeli occupation forces destroyed another Palestinian house.

Several Israeli military vehicles invaded, in the early morning hours of Thursday, the Dahia area, south of Nablus, and detonated the home belonging to detainee Ragheb ‘Oleiwy, who stands accused of killing two Israeli settlers, according to the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC).

After invading the Dahia area, the IOF surrounded the home of Oleiwy and afterwards forced his family out.

According to IMEMC, the invasion led to clashes between the Israeli soldiers and local youths in different parts of Nablus.

Israeli authorities believe Oleiwy is the head of “a cell that shot and killed an Israeli settler and his wife,” near Beit Forik town, approximately two months ago, as stated by IMEMC.

He was taken prisoner on October 3, just two days after the shooting; he is a married and father of one child.

The demolition  of Oleiwy’s house came less than 24 hours after the IOF demolished the house of martyr Ibrahim Akkari in Shuafat Refugee Camp, in occupied East Jerusalem.

International and local human rights organizations blame Israel’s attitude of demolishing houses as a collective punishment which is against the international law.
