Israeli occupation forces demolished Tuesday, March 14, a Palestinian home in the occupied city of Jerusalem, amid an escalation in the policy of displacement against Jerusalemites to expel them from their land.
The occupation forces, accompanied by a bulldozer and military vehicles, stormed the town of Umm Tuba in occupied Jerusalem, and demolished a house belonging to the family of Muhammad Abu Tair, under the pretext of “building without a permit”.
They prevented the Palestinian residents of the town from entering and leaving it and turned it into military barracks until the completion of the demolition process.
The Israeli occupation forces also handed Fatima Salem a decision to demolish her house in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
Occupation forces suspended the demolition decision on Salem’s house, giving them a period of 21 days to self-demolish it, otherwise, the occupation forces will demolish it.
The Israeli occupation has escalated the policy of home demolition and forced displacement against Palestinian citizens in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
Last February, it targeted 187 Palestinian structures with demolitions, closures, or demolition notices.
