Description : In the summer of 2006, the Loubadeh family were woken at two in the morning by the sound of shooting outside the block of flats where they lived in Nablus. Israeli soldiers ordered them to leave the building along with 13 other families living in the block. The Israeli Defence Forces were searching for two ‘wanted men’ who they said were hiding in the block, and demanded that the men should leave the building. When they got no response, the soldiers threatened the families at gunpoint, forcing some of the men to go back into the building to evacuate anyone remaining. At this point, bulldozers were moved in and started demolishing the building. Majdi Loubadeh, his wife Shireen and two young children watched throughout the night, and the next day as the building was destroyed in front of their eyes. During the operation, a 15 year old boy, who threw paint at one of the IDE vehicles, was shot and killed - amateur video footage records the arrival of an ambulance and the removal of his body.
