The Israeli occupation authorities on Monday morning knocked down a Palestinian home in al-Walaja village in Bethlehem.

Anti-settlement activist Ibrahim Awadallah said that several Israeli bulldozers rolled into al-Walaja in the early morning hours and demolished a house owned by the Palestinian citizen Majdy al-Shubaki.

Awadallah told Quds Press that the demolished building was home to a family of five members who were left in the open with no shelter.

The Palestinian activist noted that Israel demolishes new houses in the village on a regulalr basis under the pretext of lacking Israeli building permits.
