Israeli forces destroy two houses in West Bank village

Nov. 12, 2008 7:34 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 12, 2008 7:34 P.M.)
Ramallah - Ma'an - Israeli forces demolished two houses in the West Bank village of Shaqba, west of the city of Ramallah, on Wednesday afternoon, citing a lack of building permits.

A total of 18 people lived in the two homes.

The houses belonged to the family of Bassem Hassan Subhi Ibrahim. Israeli authorities delivered demolition orders for another five houses.

Hard-to-obtain building permits are often used as a pretext to demolish Palestinian homes throughout the occupied territories.

In 2006 three houses were destroyed in the same village.
