Israeli authorities demolished, on Wednesday, another Palestinian-owned in Silwan town in occupied East Jerusalem, in the West Bank, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.
The occupation army isolated and closed roads leading to the Wadi Hilweh area of Silwan before demolishing the home of Sultan Halisi and his wife and four children, under the pretext of building without an Israeli permit, according to WAFA correspondent.
Halisi stated that the Israeli municipality staff have harassed him and imposed a 35,000 shekel fine against the Halisi family who have been living in the home since 2014.
Municipality workers destroyed the 60-square-meter home under the full protection of Israeli soldiers, after ordering Halisi to destroy the home himself, which he refused to do.
The occupation authorities will likely impose an excessive fine against the family for using staff and equipment to carry out the demolition.
The Israeli occupation frequently demolishes the homes of Palestinians on the pretext of not having a license, despite denying Palestinian families the right to build.
