Israeli bulldozers demolished an under-construction house owned by an Arab-Israeli in the central Israeli town of Kafr Qasim this morning.

Israeli police raided the home of Ramzi Bin Bari and demolished it.

According to locals, the demolition was carried out because the building lacked difficult to obtain Israeli-issued building permits. Bin Bari had recently moved to the town, locals added.

Despite attempts by residents to prevent the demolition, the bulldozers continued work until the house was completely destroyed.

Bin Bari told Ma’an that his case was still being discussed in court in an attempt to gain a permit for the property. He added that he had not received a demolition order and was shocked when bulldozers arrived at the house.

Another Palestinian home was demolished in Kafr Qasim on Sunday, also without prior notice according to the homeowner.
