Israel demolishes another Palestinian house in a neighborhood of East al-Quds as its forces detain over a dozen Palestinians in several areas across the occupied West Bank.
Palestine’s official Wafa news agency, citing media sources, reported that Israeli bulldozers, accompanied by troops, raided the neighborhood of Jabal al-Mukabber at dawn on Monday and cordoned off the house before demolishing it. They claimed the house, belonging to Adham Bashir, had been constructed without a permit.
The so-called permits are almost impossible to obtain. Israel sometimes orders Palestinian owners to demolish their own houses or pay the costs of the demolition.
uring the ensuing confrontations, the heavily-armed Israeli forces opened fire on local youths, injuring more than two dozen by rubber-coated steel bullets. Several Palestinians suffered asphyxiation as a result of inhaling tear gas used by Israeli forces.
The Tel Aviv regime plans to force out Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah and several other neighborhoods of East al-Quds in an attempt to replace them with settlers.
Palestinian media, citing local sources, reported that Israeli troops launched an arrest campaign with raids and attacks in various parts of the occupied territories overnight and at dawn on Monday. They abducted a mother along with her son after ransacking their family house in Silwad town, east of Ramallah. Another Palestinian man was forcibly detained after Israeli soldiers broke into a house in al-Mazra'a al-Gharbiya village in the same area.
In Nablus, regime troops detained six Palestinians. The assault resulted in the killing of one Palestinian and injuring seven others.
In Jenin, Israeli troops stormed the town of Jaba, where they detained a Palestinian man and ransacked several houses.
A Palestinian was also detained in Dheisheh refugee camp, located just south of Bethlehem.
