Meanwhile, employees of the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem along with Israeli Special Forces broke into the house of Musa Obeidat at 4:30am.

Speaking to Quds Press, Obeidat said that he had a demolition order and planned to demolish his house by himself to avoid paying the high cost of demolition imposed by the municipality, but Israeli bulldozers came earlier and destroyed the unit. He is now obliged to pay the bulldozers’ fees.
