Zionist gangs raze house, displaces family in Beit Hanina
The zionist municipality in Occupied Jerusalem demolished on Tuesday afternoon a Palestinian house in al-Ashqariya neighborhood of Beit Hanina town at the pretext of unlicensed construction.
Zionist gangs, who escorted the bulldozers and a municipal crew, forcibly removed the Alloun family from the house, physically assaulted its members and injured one of them in his leg.
Homeowner Majdi Alloun said that municipal employees only gave him a quarter of an hour to procure and pay 25,000 shekels in order to stop the demolition process, and later the bulldozers embarked on knocking down his house.
Alloun added that municipal workers removed some of the furniture from the house and gave him only five minutes to take away his belongings before they razed it to the ground while there were still many things inside.
The municipality had already forced Alloun to pay a construction penalty worth 40,000 shekels in 2016.
Alloun was living with his wife and kids in the house, which he built in 2011.
