Israeli occupation forces ordered Sunday morning, October 1, a Palestinian woman to forcibly demolish her house in Beit Hanina town, north of occupied Jerusalem.
Local Palestinian sources reported that Israeli troops stormed Beit Hanina town, forcing Palestinian woman Faiza Al-Obaidi to self-demolish her two apartments under the pretext of building without a license.
Each apartment has an area of 125 square meters where ten Palestinians live.
Al-Obaidi explained that the family, despite following the procedures for obtaining a license, were forced to demolish their apartments to avoid further financial fines by the Israeli occupation in the case the Israeli military units demolished them.
The Israeli occupation uses a variety of tactics to push Palestinians out of their homes and destroy their properties in order to expand illegal settlements on their lands, using many false excuses, the top of which is “building without a permit.”
According to OCHA in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, the Israeli troops demolished, confiscated and forced Palestinians to tear down 54 buildings in occupied Jerusalem and West Bank Area C in July only, resulting in the displacement of 66 Palestinians and the loss of nearly 800 livelihoods.
