Occupied WB, ALRAY - Israeli bulldozers demolished Monday morning a Palestinian house in ''Rafat'' town, north of occupied Jerusalem.

Palestinian security sources said that 40 occupation military vehicles, accompanied by several bulldozers, demolished a house owned by Samer abu-Ghazaleh.

Abu-Ghazaleh said the occupation demolished his house and erased his grape field and the surrounding fence of his farm.

Since 1967, about 27,000 Palestinian homes and other structures (livestock pens and fencing for example) crucial for a family’s livelihood, have been demolished in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).

In 2013, Israel destroyed 99 buildings in annexed East Jerusalem, leaving 298 people homeless, according to United Nations humanitarian affairs agency OCHA.
