Israel to tear down Palestinian houses east of Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, Thursday, October 28, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today handed demolition orders against two Palestinian houses in the Bedouin community of Abu Nuwar, east of Jerusalem, according to local sources.

Daoud Jahalin, a Fatah activist, said that Israeli troops barged their way into the community, and handed siblings Bilal and Ibrahim Jahalin notices, ordering them to demolish their houses, each of which occupies an area of 50 square meters.

The military orders grant the Jahalin brothers until November 1 to carry out the demolition order on their own. Otherwise, they have to pay exorbitant fines if the occupation authorities carry out the demolition.

Jahalin pointed that the demolition was intended to forcefully displace the community and seize their land for colonial settlement construction.

Located in the so-called “Area C” of the West Bank, the community has been prevented by the Israeli authorities from undertaking any construction, including roads that would allow a school bus to access the community and safely bring the children to and from school.
