The Israeli occupation authorities demolished on Tuesday the second floor of a Palestinian-owned house in the town of Hezma, to the northeast of occupied Jerusalem, under the pretext that it was built without an Israeli permission, according to Hezma mayor Musallam Abu Hilo

He told the official WAFA news agency that staff from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem escorted by a bulldozer embarked on demolishing the second floor of the two story house, which was inhabited by Rami Khatib, his wife and six children.

He said the municipality evacuated the house located on the main road near the Israeli separation wall before demolishing its second floor, which was built on top of a house constructed since the 1970s.
