JERUSALEM, Tuesday, June 29, 2021 (WAFA) – Staff of the Israeli municipality today demolished without any prior notice a residential apartment in the East Jerusalem Silwan neighborhood of Swaih, displacing its residents, according to local sources.

The family was waiting for a court hearing that was supposed to discuss an appeal they submitted against the demolition of their house, but that the municipality went ahead and demolished it before the hearing.
