NAZARETH, (PIC)-- The Israeli authorities sent bulldozers to raze a two-storey Palestinian house in Majd Al-Kurum in north of Palestine occupied in 1948 without prior notice at the pretext of lack of construction permit.

Palestinian sources said that a big number of policemen and border police backed by a chopper surrounded the area at dawn Wednesday and blocked traffic in and out of it before breaking into the home of Fayez Khalaile and ordering all its occupants out without giving them time to take with them their personal belongings.

Khalaile said that the Israeli authorities refused his repeated attempts to license the house at the pretext it was near to the main road of Akka-Safad.

He added in a press release that he sought to delay the demolition in courts and won a ruling deferring the demolition for one year but was surprised to see the interior ministry team arriving without prior notice and tearing down his home.

In a related development, the Israeli occupation authority’s municipality in occupied Jerusalem served a demolition notice to a Palestinian in Silwan town at the pretext his house was built without permit and imposed a heavy fine on him (89000 shekels).
