PNN/ Kufr Qassem/
Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) on Monday demolished a house in the village of Kafr Qasim in the 1948 lands, under the pretext of building without a permit.
An Israeli court, east of Tel Aviv, had recently rejected the appeal submitted by a lawyer, to freeze the demolition order.
According to the Arab48 website, there is a threat of demolition in the southeastern region of the village for 13 other family homes.
A number of residents expressed their condemnation and anger at the continuing crimes of Palestinian house demolitions, demanding an end to the demolition, and immediate solutions to the housing crisis.
The Israeli authorities’ vehicles and bulldozers recently demolished a two-storey house in the city of Lod, and the tents and dwellings of Al-Araqib residents were deprived of recognition and threatened with uprooting and displacement in the Negev region, for the 180th consecutive time.
It is noteworthy that the Palestinian towns within the lands of 1948 witnessed an escalation in the demolition of homes, shops, and industrial workshops, under the pretext of not being licensed, as happened in: the village of Ein Mahal in Ljilil, Jaffa, Shefaram, Kufr Qasem, Qalansawa, Kafr Yasif, Arara, and Umm Al-Fahm, Lod, Sakhnin, Hurfeish, the Negev towns, and others.
