SCRIPT
Israeli forces began evacuating families and demolishing several houses in East Jerusalem's Sur Baher neighborhood on Monday.
The demolitions are the culmination of a seven-year dispute between Israel and the residents of the area. The lawsuit claims the buildings were constructed without proper legal permission and are located too close to the border wall posing a security risk.
Hundreds of armed Israeli police officers arrived on place early on Monday and several Palestinian families were evicted, bulldozers and diggers were then moved in to reportedly destroy 16 buildings with 100 apartments. Many Palestinians are reportedly homeless after the demolition.
