Scuffles Erupt as Israeli Army Demolishes Palestinian Houses on West Bank.

Israeli forces demolished two homes deemed to have been built illegally in the West Bank, Thursday, January 16, prompting scuffles between local Palestinian residents and Israeli Army officers.

The Israeli Civil Administration said in a statement that the buildings were built illegally, without the necessary permits, and the actions were performed in accordance with the authorities and required procedures.

The family who owned the homes argues that they were in the process of legalizing the houses through the Civil Administration. (REUTERS)
