(IsraelNN.com) Police report a large force is standing by in Haifa, prepared to move in and execute an eviction order against the Bushkhar family living illegally in the city.

A confrontation is taking place on the scene between police commanders and Arab MKs seeking to prevent the razing of the illegal structures belonging to the Israeli Arab family.

Bushkhar family members are holed up inside since yesterday, now clutching liquid propane gas canisters, threatening to blow up the area.

Police explain the demolition order follows a five year court battle by the family which resulted in a ruling against family members.
