JERUSALEM, Wednesday, May 27, 2020 (WAFA) – A Palestinian family was forced to tear down parts of its home in Silwan neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem after receiving demolition order from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem, according to the family.

The Siam family said that the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem delivered three demolition orders to the family under the pretext of building without an Israeli issued permit.

The family was forced to demolish parts of the house with their own hands to avoid paying exorbitant costs if the Israeli West Jerusalem municipality demolishes it.
