Israeli Municipality Demolishes Palestinian House in Galilee

06:00 Nov 16 2011 Basma Tabon, Galilee

BASMA TABON, November 16, 2011 (WAFA) - Bulldozers of the Israeli Ministry of Interior, under police protection, Wednesday at dawn demolished a Palestinian home in the village of Basma Tabon in Galilee, claiming it was built without permit, according to head of the village council Mohammad Yaseen.

He condemned, in a press release, the demolition of the house and announced a general strike on Thursday in the village.

Yaseen said there are dozens of houses threatened with demolition in the village, due to the Israeli authorities’ refusal to issue any new building permits.

He added that the village council has been trying for years to add one of the village neighborhoods, which contains 35 houses, to its jurisdiction in order to be able to issue building permits, particularly when all these houses are built on privately owned land.

The Israeli ministry of interior as well as the planning and building committee keep stalling the approval of this request.
