Israel demolishes blind man's home in Jerusalem-area village
Hani Halabiyya, a spokesman for East Jerusalem's popular resistance committees, told Ma'an that a large number of Israeli troops and military vehicles raided the Jabal al-Baba area of al-Eizariya village early Wednesday.
Bulldozers then proceeded to demolish a house owned by Suleiman Jahalin, a blind man who says he has been living in the Jabal al-Baba area since 1967.
Before starting the demolition, Israeli troops forcefully removed Jahalin and ten of his family members from their home, he told Ma'an.
