The Israeli military has reportedly demolished two Palestinian houses in the West Bank on Thursday because they were built without permits, according to AFP.

The Al-Shawamreh family of 13, including nine children, were ordered to leave the house at dawn before bulldozers destroyed the two cement buildings, family members told AFP.

"These specific houses were built illegally and there was no one living there, so that's why we destroyed them," AFP quoted an IDF spokesman as saying.
