Israel demolishes Palestinian family’s home, for the 4th time

Israeli authorities on Monday demolished a two-storey house belonging to a Palestinian family in the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Issawiya, on the grounds of not having a building permit.

Israel makes it almost impossible for Palestinians to get building permits, while the Israeli government plans and expands settlements in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank regularly.

Israeli demolitions, on the grounds of lacking building permits, are widely viewed as illegal, according to international law. OCHA, the United Nations’s humanitarian office, has called on Israel to stop the practice.
