Palestinian men from Za'tara family destroys their family home at Okba al-Khalidiya neighborhood in the Old city, on Nov. 09, 2013. Samer Za'tara, 43, decided to demolish his own home to carry out an Israeli court order, following pay 12,000 shekels as violations under the pretext of building without municipality permit. Many Palestinians end up demolishing their homes themselves to avoid the high cost of paying for Israeli government bulldozers, or being sent to prison for not being able to pay. Photo by Saeed Qaq
