Israeli occupation forces IOF demolished on Monday, January 16, a Palestinian structure in Beit Hanina town in occupied Jerusalem.

Media sources reported that the Israeli bulldozers demolished several structures owned by the Khader family in occupied Jerusalem.

Last August, Israeli occupation forces forced five members of the Jerusalemite Khader family to demolish their five houses under the pretext of building without a permit.

Earlier today, Palestinian youth Alaa Khader said that the Israeli forces imposed a fine of $90,000 on the Khader family.

Israeli occupation authorities force the Palestinians to self-demolish their homes. Otherwise, Israeli bulldozers demolish them in exchange for huge fines.

Khader added that the occupation bulldozers a 20-square-meter room for the family after forcibly evacuating them.

He pointed out that his father passed away several months ago from a heart attack sooner after Israeli occupation authorities ordered him to demolish his home.

Two days ago, Israeli occupation authorities forces a Palestinian father of five children to self-demolish his own home in Jerusalem’s town of Hanina.

Israeli forces systematically carry out demolitions of Palestinian homes in occupied Jerusalem under flimsy pretexts.

Most of the Palestinian homes are demolished mainly under the pretext of building without a permit. Meanwhile, a third of the Palestinian families in occupied Jerusalem were built without permits because Israel denied them permits.
