Jerusalem24 – Israeli bulldozers Wednesday morning demolished a Palestinian-owned house in Shufat refugee camp, north of the occupied city of Jerusalem, according to local sources.
The sources said that a large Israeli military unit escorted two bulldozers into the neighborhood, where the heavy machineries tore down a tin-roofed house in Ras Khamis area of the camp.
Confrontations broke out between the Israeli soldiers and Palestinians during the demolition. No casualties were reported, however.
Using the pretext of illegal building, Israel demolishes houses on a regular basis to restrict Palestinian expansion in occupied Jerusalem.
