The Israeli police demolished the home of the Palestinian Salhia family in the disputed Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem.

Yesterday, the police forces withdrew from the area, which has been in tension since Monday, after a family member threatened to detonate a gas cylinder if the forces entered his house with the aim of evacuating it.

But the Israeli forces returned at dawn today to storm the house and arrest those inside it, before bulldozers demolish it.

The daughter of Mahmoud Salhia, the owner of the house, said that the Israeli forces suddenly stormed the house and assaulted her father while he was sleeping before arresting him and 26 other people, including a number of people in solidarity with the family, after the attack on them.
