West Jerusalem Israeli municipality tears down Palestinian-owned structures in Silwan neighborhood

JERUSALEM, Wednesday, May 31, 2023 (WAFA) – Bulldozers of the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem today demolished several commercial structures and a residential room made of metal in Wad Qaddoum area in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, according to Wadi Hilweh Information Center.

It said that Israeli forces surrounded a plot of land in Wad Qaddoum before breaking into it and proceeding to demolish structures built on the land under the pretext that they were built without a permit.

Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem say they are forced to build without a permit because the Israeli municipality rarely issues permits to the city’s indigenous Palestinian citizens as a way to reduce their number by forcing them to leave it and find accommodation and work elsewhere.
