Gaza23Aug6RAMLA (PNIC):-The Israeli authorities on Tuesday demolished a Palestinian residential facility in Ramla city in the central 1948 occupied Palestine for allegedly being unlicensed.

Local sources reported that Israeli bulldozers knocked down a house owned by the Palestinian citizen Ayman Abu Rayyash and his seven-member family in al-Ribat neighborhood and uprooted a number of olive trees near the house.

Ayman Abu Rayyash said that Israeli municipality bulldozers, escorted by a large police force, stormed the neighborhood without prior warning and imposed a cordon around the area before the demolition.

Rayyash told Quds Press, "They demolished the house without allowing us to get the furniture out," adding that that they were left in the open without shelter.

The Ramla popular committee called for an urgent meeting to discuss ways of confronting the Israeli municipality's racist policies and start the reconstruction of the demolished house.

The Israeli authorities have recently stepped up their demolition operations in the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories in a thinly veiled attempt to settle the Palestinians living there in small, isolated communities.

Nearly 1,800,000 Palestinians currently live in the 1948 occupied Palestine and they are the descendants of 160,000 Palestinians who managed to stay in their lands following the establishment of Israel in 1948.

Palestinians represent 20% of the population of the Hebrew state and they are subjected to constant discrimination especially in the fields of housing and employment.
