Lod, MINA – The Israeli municipality on Wednesday morning demolished the foundation and remaining parts of a Palestinian house in Lod city in the central district of Israel after it forced its owners to knock it down with their own hands a few months ago, PIC reported.
Israeli police forces at dawn stormed and cordoned off the neighborhood where the house is located before bulldozers embarked on removing its remaining structure.
The municipality justified its action by claiming the house was built with no permit, although the owners’ requests to obtain construction authorization were always declined.
Al-Faqir family, who owns the house, said it was built to accommodate one of its members who was going to get married soon.
The family complains that the Israeli authorities refuse to give the Arab natives of the city construction permits or find housing solutions for them.(T/R04/RS5)
