Israel demolishes foundations of 3 Jerusalem apartments

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished the foundations of three apartments under construction in the Jabal al-Mukkabir neighborhood in East Jerusalem on Tuesday, locals said.

Said al-Abbasi said that Israeli bulldozers escorted by armed officers demolished the foundations of the properties, which he began building four months ago.

Israel's Jerusalem municipality had issued demolition orders on the apartment, which the family only learnt about on Saturday.

Israel rarely grants construction permits to Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and regularly demolishes structures built without permits.

In a separate incident on Tuesday, Israeli forces demolished part of a home in the Wadi al-Joz neighborhood, east of Jerusalem's Old City.

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