JERUSALEM, Thursday, July 21, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today ordered a number of Palestinians to leave their dwellings in the Bedouin community of Abu Nuwar, east of Jerusalem, according to local sources.
Daoud Jahalin, a local activist, said that Israeli troops barged their way into the community, and handed several residents of the community notices ordering them to leave their dwellings within two weeks or else have their dwellings reduced to rubble.
The residents of the nearby town of Anata own the land on which the community is established and have title deeds testifying to their ownership.
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 a population of some 180 people. It 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.
