Israeli occupation forces on Thursday notified the family of Mohammad Mraweh Kabaha, a prisoner in Israeli detention, about their intention to demolish their house in the village of Tura, located southwest of Jenin city in the occupied West Bank.
Kabaha's brother, Mo'ayyad, was quoted by Wafa news agency as stating that Israeli occupation army informed them of a court ruling which orders the punitive demolition of their house next week.
The house has an area of 180 square meters, and is a shelter for a family of five, including four children.
Israeli occupation authorities continue to punitively demolish the family homes of Palestinians accused of carrying out attacks on Israelis, a policy that Israel does not apply to Israeli settlers who are involved in fatal attacks against Palestinians.
The policy has been widely condemned by human rights groups as a collective punishment and a war crime.
