In video - Israeli bulldozers demolish residential building in East Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished a Palestinian-owned residential building, on Tuesday, in the Shufat refugee camp, in occupied East Jerusalem.

A Ma'an reporter said that a large number of Israeli forces along with bulldozers stormed the Shufat refugee camp while helicopters flew overhead.

Sources confirmed that Israeli forces were deployed throughout the refugee camp as bulldozers demolished an under-construction residential building.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in East Jerusalem, though the Jerusalem municipality has claimed that compared to the Jewish population, they receive a disproportionately low number of permit applications from Palestinian communities, which also see high approval ratings.

For Jewish Israelis in occupied East Jerusalem's illegal settlements, the planning, marketing, development, and infrastructure are funded and executed by the Israeli government. By contrast, in Palestinian neighborhoods, all the burden falls on individual families to contend with a lengthy permit application that can last several years and cost tens of thousands of dollars.
