Khaled Zir al-Husseini and his family moved into a cave down the hill, as they had to find a new roof following the destruction of their house by Israeli forces. Israeli forces have destroyed the homes of 716 Palestinians in 2013, according to HRW, which has recorded a three-fold increase in the number of demolitions in east Jerusalem since last year.
