OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) razed a Palestinian building to the east of Enata village in occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday.

Safa’a Hamdan, An engineer working with the village’s local council, said that the IOA demolished the house after serving the inhabitants a notice three days ago.

She said that the Israeli security forces escorted the demolition teams and knocked down the house at the pretext of lack of construction permit.

Hamdan noted that the owner of the building, Ahmed Al-Lahaleh, had filed an appeal against the decision but the Israeli municipality teams did not even wait for the court hearing and went on with the demolition.

She said that the families inhabiting the house, consisting of 20 individuals, have no other place to go to, adding that this is the second time the IOA knocks down a house for the Lahaleh family.
