Israel measures Palestinian home for demolition near Bethlehem

Nov. 9, 2018 11:34 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 9, 2018 5:51 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces stormed the al-Khader village, south of the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, on Friday, and took measurements of a Palestinian-owned home, in preparation to demolish it.

Local sources reported that Israeli forces stormed Abu Suod area, west of the al-Khader village, and took measurements of a family home belonging to Youssef Abed Moussa.

Israeli forces took photographs of the home, measuring 120-square-meters, from various angles.

Sources pointed out that Moussa had received a stop-construction order from the Israeli authorities,one month ago, under the pretext that his house was built without the difficult-to-obtain Israeli permit.

However, Moussa had filed an appeal to an Israeli court regarding the order at the time.

Israel uses the pretext of building without a permit to carry out demolitions of Palestinian-owned homes on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory are more easily given building permits and allowed to expand their homes and properties, despite living in settlements that violate international law.
