Authorities demolish Palestinian home, foundations of two others inside Israel

KUFR QASSEM, March 2, 2017 (WAFA) � Israeli bulldozers Thursday demolished a house and the foundations of two others belonging to Palestinians in the Arab town of Kufr Qassem, inside Israel, citing construction without a permit as the pretext, according to witnesses.

A large Israeli police and border guards force cordoned off the area before bulldozers proceeded to demolish a two-storey house that was still in the construction stage and foundations for two others.

Ramzi Bri, one of those affected by the demolition, told WAFA that he was surprised when the bulldozers and police came to raze his house because he did not receive a demolition order and that the case of his house was pending in Israeli courts.
