Israel to demolish a residential building in Silwan

JERUSALEM, Sunday, December 11, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation authorities decided today to demolish a Palestinian residential building in the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, according to local sources.

WAFA correspondent said the building to be demolished is 30 years old, and is inhabited by households from the Palestinian family of Rajabi.

Under the pretext of building without a permit, which is rarely granted to Palestinians in the occupied city, the Israeli municipality frequently demolished Palestinian-owned houses as part of a policy aimed to restrict Palestinian expansion and growth in occupied Jerusalem.

At the same time, the municipality and government build tens of thousands of housing units in illegal settlements in East Jerusalem for Israeli Jewish settlers with in order to offset the demographic balance in favor of the Jewish settlers in the occupied city.
