Home Demolished Near Nablus

19 July 2007

This morning Israeli Occupation forces invaded the village of Zawata, near Nablus. Israeli tanks and jeeps were used to close the street and residents were forced to stay in their homes for several hours as Israeli forces demolished the home of the Anatur family. Residents called an ambulance, fearing the soldiers would use violence against residents, but the ambulance was prevented from reaching the area. After the demolition, Israeli forces disguised as Palestinians, arrested Abu Jihad Anatur, 21, who was a relative of the family whose home was demolished.
