Several Israeli military vehicles, and bulldozers, invaded the al-Jaroushiyya village, north of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, and demolished a home belonging to a local judge.

The soldiers surrounded the home of Justice Kifah ash-Shouly, a judge in the Appeal Court in the central West Bank city of Ramallah, demolished his property and the walls that surrounding it.

The judge told the WAFA Palestinian News Agency that the demolished building was a 120 square/meter two-story home.

He said he was still building his home, and stopped the construction two years ago, after the army ordered him to do so, under the pretext it was being built without a permit.

Since then, the soldiers never contacted the judge until they came to demolish his property.

“This is yet another Israeli crime, another violation, committed by the occupation against the Palestinian people,” he said, “This is an ongoing war against our very existence in our lands; all of Israel’s justifications, and allegations, are false.”

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian home in the Tulkarem village of al-Jarushiyya on Monday, locals told Ma'an.

Locals said that Israeli soldiers raided the village and demolished a two-story house owned by Palestinian judge Kifah Abd al-Rahim Sholi.

Israeli forces claim the house, which was under construction, lacked the necessary building permits.

The home is located near Israel's separation wall.

The Israeli Civil Administration said in a statement to Ma'an that "security forces carried out the demolition of an illegal building which was constructed without the necessary permits."

The building was located in an area of the "Seam Zone," where construction is prohibited, they added.

Israeli bulldozers demolished at least 552 Palestinian structures in the West Bank in 2014, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
