Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - Israeli occupation authorities knocked down Sunday a Palestinian home in Jabel Mukaber town southeast of occupied Jerusalem.
According to local sources, Israeli occupation forces broke into Jabel Mukaber and razed a two-storey home owned by a local resident named Rateb Matar.
Two families were made homeless after the Israeli occupation authorities destroyed the house under the pretext of being built without a hard-to-obtain permit.
Israeli occupation soldiers attacked the home's inhabitants as they were protesting the demolition, shooting a family member with a rubber-coated metal bullet in the hand.
The Israeli occupation authorities imposed over 700,000 shekels ($200,975) in fines against the home, which was built about 15 years ago.
