Israel demolishes Palestinian house near Tulkarem

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian home in the Tulkarem village of al-Jarushiyya on Monday, locals told Ma'an.

Locals said that Israeli soldiers raided the village and demolished a two-story house owned by Palestinian judge Kifah Abd al-Rahim Sholi.

Israeli forces claim the house, which was under construction, lacked the necessary building permits.

The home is located near Israel's separation wall.

The Israeli Civil Administration said in a statement to Ma'an that "security forces carried out the demolition of an illegal building which was constructed without the necessary permits."

The building was located in an area of the "Seam Zone," where construction is prohibited, they added.

Israeli bulldozers demolished at least 552 Palestinian structures in the West Bank in 2014, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
