ICAHD Completes Its 189th Rebuild

The Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) recently completed its 189th rebuild of a Palestinian residence. During two weeks of building in 40 degrees (104 F) heat, 20 international activists bolstered by their Palestinian and Israeli compatriots and a wonderful, professional Palestinian team of builders and grassroots donations from around the world, have given rise to a new 4-room home. They rebuilt the home of the Fhadad family who were forced to demolish their own home by the Israeli authorities.Click here to Read More
