Israel demolishes Palestinian homes

Israeli authorities bulldoze homes in East Jerusalem citing illegal construction.



    Israeli authorities have demolished five Palestinian homes in occupied East Jerusalem, saying they were built illegally without permits.

    But Palestinians say Israeli authorities have made it nearly impossible to obtain such permits.

    Human rights groups have accused Israel of using the demolitions to tighten its hold on the occupied territory, despite international calls to halt the practice.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports.
