Government demolishes illegally-constructed Arab home in east Jerusalem

Israeli bulldozers demolished an illegally-constructed Arab home in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiya shortly before dawn on Tuesday, officials said.

According to police, demolition crews and security personnel arrived at the home at approximately 4 a.m. to destroy the 180 sq. meter residence, which was built 10 months ago.

The owner, Rebhi Dari, told Arab media that he could not legally procure a building permit through the Jerusalem Municipality, nor afford the associated expenses for doing so, and was subsequently forced to construct it to house his family.
