12 October 2011

October 11th 2011: In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Israeli army bulldozers demolished a house in Al-Jab`a, not far from the illegal settlement of Bet Ayin.

The owner Naser Hassan Salim Alin Athous witnessed the demolition from his fields. His family have lived in the area for many generations. The demolished home was planned to house 14 persons.

No reason was given for the demolition.

The destruction of the Athous’ home comes less than a month after the Israeli army demolished another Beit Ommar home, and a building in the neighbouring Al Arub refugee camp (report here).
