Guess who's demolishing illegal Arab buildings?

From Ma'an:
Members of the Abu Amrah family in Gaza City demonstrated Tuesday in front of offices of the Palestinian Legislative Council protesting a decision by the Hamas-run government to demolish 75 houses belonging to the family in the al-Rimal neighborhood.

The government says it decided to demolish the houses because they were illegally built on public lands. The demolition is scheduled to be conducted Wednesday morning.

"We are refugees and we have been living in this area for tens of years," Abu Salah Abu Amra told Ma'an.
We have documented Hamas demolishing Arab homes for about two years now. Some have even involved injuries and deaths.

Yet there are no NGOs dedicated to the defense of these Arabs. No, the European NGO money goes only towards organizations that look at Israel demolishing Arab structures many of them built on public lands or lands owned by others (like Arab Christians.)
