Israeli occupation demolishes house, arrests four Palestinians
The Israeli occupation forces raided Palestinian homes in a refugee camp south of Beit Lahm and several other towns in occupied Palestine.
On Wednesday, the Israeli occupation forces arrested four Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
Wafa news agency reported that the Israeli occupation forces stormed the Dheisheh refugee camp, south of Beit Lahm, the town of Anabta, east of Tulkarm, the town of Kharas, northwest of al-Khalil, and the Tuba area in Masafer Yatta in the south, and raided Palestinian homes.
This morning, the Israeli occupation demolished a house in the town of Jabal Al-Mukaber, in the occupied city of al-Quds, under the pretext of “building without a permit.”
For his part, the owner of the demolished house told Quds Press that his home was destroyed by the occupation today, after only building it in 2017 with all the money he owned.
He pointed out that his 67-meter house, consisting of three rooms, was intended to accommodate his son, who is about to get married.

The Quds Press reporter also reported that the occupation army stormed the town and deployed its forces in the vicinity of the home of Tahseen Bashir before their machines began to demolish it.
As a result, confrontations erupted in the area's vicinity, causing injuries from rubber-coated metal bullets and dozens of suffocation incidents.
Yesterday, the IOF arrested 14 Palestinians in separate areas of the occupied West Bank.
According to human rights centers, Palestinians in Al-Quds face great difficulties in obtaining building permits, as they cost tens of thousands of dollars for each apartment. That is why Palestinians often build their homes without a permit because it is almost impossible to get one, and the reason is that the mayor and city council attempt to keep the city’s Palestinian population at a bare minimum and multiply its Jewish residents by approving the construction of thousands of new housing units in illegal Jewish settlements.
The Palestinian National Information Center says that the number of homes demolished since the Israeli occupation in 1967 has reached more than 1,900.
As part of the implementation of its Judaization plans, the occupation forces are escalating the demolition of Palestinian homes and property in the West Bank, especially in occupied Al-Quds, in light of the international community’s disregard of Palestinian demands for urgent intervention and the implementation of UN Resolution 2334, which demands a halt to settlements.
