Palestinian Family Living in a Cave Face Eviction by Israeli Authorities – The Palestine Chronicle

Israeli authorities have threatened to demolish the West Bank cave that a Palestinian family have sought sanctuary in after they were refused permission to build a house, according to the news agency AFP.

Ahmed Amarneh’s home may be the first built inside a cave that Israeli occupation authorities have threatened to destroy.

Amarneh, whose home was not targeted on Monday, had told AFP he was “surprised” to learn that he had built anything illegally.

“I didn’t make the cave. It has existed since antiquity,” he said, holding his young daughter in his arms. “I don’t understand how they can prevent me from living in a cave. Animals live in caves and are not thrown out. So, let them treat me like an animal and let me live in the cave.”
