Palestinian forced to self-demolish his home in occupied East Jerusalem

 

JERUSALEM, Monday, June 7, 2021 (WAFA) – A Palestinian resident of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal al-Mukaber was forced today to demolish his house with his own hands to avoid paying high costs and fines after he received a demolition order from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem, according to local sources.

Palestinian resident Mohannad Basheer tore down his 150-square-meter house with his own hands to avoid paying exorbitant costs; amounting to over $18000, if the Jerusalem municipality carries out the demolition on its own.

The demolition of the house resulted in the displacement of his family composed of five members.
