JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished two Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem on Tuesday, locals said.

Bulldozers arrived in the Sur Bahir neighborhood in southern Jerusalem and demolished the home of Aref Hussein Amireh, witnesses said.

The property housed 14 people from two families.

Israeli bulldozers also demolished the home of Nasser al-Rajabi in an area north of Beit Hanina. Al-Rajabi told Ma'an that Israeli forces arrived at 6 a.m. and removed all the furniture from the house before destroying it.

He received no prior notice before the demolition of the home, which housed a family of eight, he added.

Local youths threw rocks at the bulldozer during the demolition.
