Israeli forces demolished a two-story Palestinian home in East Jerusalem on Tuesday, making 30 people homeless.

"We are refugees now, we don't have any shelter. Where should we, our children and elderly people go after our house was demolished?" a resident said.

Rights groups say that Israel implements a series of discriminatory practices in housing, planning, residency rights and budget allocation in East Jerusalem, with the aim of reducing the number of Palestinians living in the city.
