IOF demolish Palestinian’s home to connect two settlemens, Jerusalem

PNN/ Jerusalem/

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Wednesday morning have demolished the home of a Palestinian family in Jerusalem, to open a road that connects two illegal Israeli settlements.

Soldiers broke into the Shuafat neighbourhood in East Jerusalem, evacuated the house and formed a military cord around the area, then prevented the Palestinians from approaching it before the demolition.

The demolition came under the usual pretext of having no building permit, which Israel refused to give it to the family even though they have been trying to get it for years.

Now, the area will be used to connect Ramat Shlomo and Pisgat Ze’ev settlements.
