Local sources reported that the three-story house was under construction and located in the northern area of Ara neighborhood
They said that hundreds of Arara people rushed to the scene to defend the home against demolition and threw stones at the Israeli troops who responded by firing stunt and tear gas grenades. They also reportedly kidnapped three young men.
Israeli bulldozers escorted by a large force of policemen stormed the village at dawn today and embarked on demolishing the home of Noman Abu Salem who resorted to Israeli courts many times to prevent its demolition, but to not avail, although his house was built on his own piece of land.
In a separate incident, the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) ordered three Palestinian citizens to demolish their homes and a foundry in Burka village, northwest of Nablus, at the pretext they are built in area C and in violation of Israeli conditions.
