Israeli occupation forces demolished on Wednesday afternoon Palestinian house in Jerusalem neighbourhood of Shu'fat and displaced 22 inhabitants.

Local witnesses said that a large number of Israeli occupation forces stormed the neighbourhood equipped with a bulldozer.

They forcefully evacuated the Palestinian inhabitants of the house and demolished it without giving the inhabitants enough time to take some of their furniture off.

Israeli media reported Israeli army sources claiming that house was built without the needed licenses and it must have been demolished.

Palestinians always cannot get the needed permissions from the Israeli occupation authorities to build, renovate or expand their homes in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Therefore, they are obliged to built without these licenses and pay thousands of dollars as fines, but this does not protect their homes from being demolished when the Israeli occupation authorities desire. “This is based on the Israel need to implement a settlement plan,” owner of the house said.
