Israel to Demolish a House near Bethlehem

Israel to Demolish a House near Bethlehem
BETHLEHEM, August 29, 2012 (WAFA) – An Israeli court Wednesday rejected an appeal by a Palestinian family to stop a previous demolition order of their house in Abu Soud, an area west of the town of al-Khader , south near Bethlehem, according to a local activist.
The coordinator of the popular committee against settlements and the Apartheid Wall in al-Khader, Ahmed Salah, told WAFA that Ali Mousa appealed a demolition order of his residence, which houses 17 family members. The appeal was rejected and the court ordered the demolition to be carried out on Thursday.
The house will be demolished under the pretext that it was built without a permit and that it stands in the construction path of the Apartheid Wall, said Salah.
He noted that Mousa’s house was demolished four times before for the same reasons.
Salah urged human rights organizations to immediately intervene in the case and stop the demolition.
