Israeli Forces Demolish Home of Palestinian Prisoner

Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian house with dynamite, in the city of Jenin. The house belonged to Ahmad Jamal Al-Qumbaa, who is currently detained in an Israeli jail.

Israel accuses Al-Qumbaa of being involved in an attack near Nablus, last January, in which an Israeli settler was killed.

Clashes erupted between Palestinian youth and Israeli forces during the Israeli raid on Jenin. Soldiers fired rubber bullets and tear gas resulting in one injury and many cases of suffocation due to gas inhalation among Palestinian protesters.

Over the years Israel has demolished hundreds of homes, as part of what Palestinians and human rights experts see as a collective punishment policy, leaving thousands of Palestinians homeless.
