Israeli municipality demolishes Palestinian house in East Jerusalem

 

JERUSALEM, Tuesday, November 05, 2019 (WAFA) – The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem today demolished a Palestinian house in Silwan, a neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, under the pretext it was built without a permit, according to the house owner.

Members of the Abbasi family told WAFA that staff from the municipality protected by security forces broke into their one-floor house  in Silwan and forced the family to leave it before proceeding to demolish it.

Palestinians in East Jerusalem say they are forced to build without a permit because getting one from the Israeli municipality that discriminates against them is an almost impossible task, particularly in Silwan, which is adjacent to the Old City of Jerusalem.
