Gaza11Oct3AL-KHALIL (PNIC):-The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Wednesday took over a Palestinian house in the Old City of al-Khalil and turned it into a military barracks.

The house is located in a closed area that has been under Israeli control for over 15 years now.

The house, which is considered one of the oldest buildings in the area, is owned by the Palestinian families of al-Qudsi and al-Kurd.

Al-Khalil Rehabilitation Committee said that the IOF soldiers blocked the house's windows with sandbags and turned it into a lookout.

Head of the committee Emad Hamdan said that the old Palestinian houses in the Old City of al-Khalil are a constant target for both the Israeli authorities and settlers. These houses are often seized and turned into military barracks, he added.

Hamdan pointed out that the Israeli settlers steal the stones of these ancient buildings and use them in their newly-established buildings in an attempt to alter the history of the Old City.

He called on the Palestinians to unite to be able to put an end to the Israeli takeover policy pursued against Palestinian houses and shops.
