Israel issues demolition orders for Palestinian home near Jerusalem

Jan. 10, 2014 2:56 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 11, 2014 10:55 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Friday issued a notice to a Palestinian family mandating they demolish their own house east of Jerusalem, a Fatah official told Ma'an.

The notice said that Ahmad Mohammad Hassan Helwa would have to demolish his house in the village of in Anata before Jan. 14, Mohammad Helwa said.

He added that Israeli demolition teams had destroyed Helwa's house and farm in the past, but that he had since rebuilt them.

Israel destroyed more than 663 Palestinian properties in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2013, displacing at least 1,103 people, according to UN figures.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. It has demolished at least 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures since occupying the West Bank in 1967, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
