Israeli forces this morning left 20 Palestinians homeless in the Beit Jala’s Beir Ouna neighbourhood in the occupied Bethlehem district.

Two homes and a room that were part of a family complex were demolished.

One of the residents, Moussa Zreina, told Ma’an that he, along with his five brothers and a total of 20 family members, were left homeless after their houses were destroyed with no prior notice.

A spokesperson for Israel’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), which is responsible for implementing the Israeli government’s policy in the occupied Palestinian territory, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the demolitions in Sair or Beit Jala.
