Israeli forces, in the early hours of Wednesday morning, have welded shut the home of Odai Abu Jamal, in Jabal Al-Mukabber neighborhood, occupied East Jerusalem, after evacuating it and imposing a military cordon around the area.

Local sources said, according to the PNN, that an overwhelming number of soldiers broke into the neighborhood at about 3 AM, evacuated the home and began the welding process.

The family said that soldiers prevented them from approaching the house, and forced them to go away.

Eyewitnesses said that soldiers have kidnapped one youth, because he approached the house during the closure. His identity is still unknown.

The bodies were kept for more than one and a half months, and the Israeli supreme court ruled that their homes be demolished in the second half of 2014.
