PNN/ Jerusalem/

Israeli bulldozers on Wednesday morning have demolished a Palestinian residential building in Silwan town  in occupied Jerusalem, under the pretext of no building permit.

The Palestinian owned building had  four apartments in which 30 Family members lived, and have become homeless.

Last night, large IOF forces stormed the area, closed down the roads leading to it before finally demolishing it hours later.

According to PIC, the building’s owner affirmed that he has submitted construction permit requests more than once over the past 11 years, however, Israeli authorities deny construction permits for Jerusalemites.
