After morning demolition, two more homes razed in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, October 26, 2016 (WAFA) – After demolishing a building with four apartments in East Jerusalem’s Silwan neighborhood early Wednesday under the pretext of building without a permit, the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished later in the day two more homes in Beit Hanina neighborhood under the same pretext, according to local sources.

A large Israeli police force provided protection to bulldozers as they proceeded to demolish homes that belong to Rajabi and Siam families.

The municipality says it intends to demolish hundreds of Palestinian homes built without a permit in the occupied east section of the city.

Palestinians say it is almost impossible to obtain a building permit in East Jerusalem and therefore they build without a permit.
