Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) on Monday demolished a Palestinian house in the village of Kafr Qasim in the 1948 lands, under the pretext of building without a permit, reported the Palestine News Network.
An Israeli court, east of Tel Aviv, had recently rejected the appeal submitted by a lawyer, to freeze the demolition order.
According to the Arab48 website, there is a threat of demolition in the southeastern region of the village for 13 other family homes.
A number of residents expressed their condemnation and anger at the continuing Israeli demolitions.
Palestinian towns within the lands occupied since 1948 witnessed an escalation in the demolition of homes, shops, and industrial workshops, under the pretext of unlicensed construction. This has been the case in the villages of Ein Mahal in Ljilil, Jaffa, Shefaram, Kufr Qasem, Qalansawa, Kafr Yasif, Arara, and Umm Al-Fahm, Lod, Sakhnin, Hurfeish, and the Negev towns, among others.
