JERUSALEM, Tuesday, December 17, 2019 (WAFA) – Bulldozers of the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished today a section of a Palestinian house in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya under the pretext that it was built without a permit.

Raed Abu Riyala, member of the Issawiya Follow-Up Committee, told WAFA that Israeli staff of the municipality protected by police sealed off the area where the house was located before proceeding to demolish its second floor.

The house, he said, belonged to Hatem Abu Riyala, adding that this is the third time the Israeli municipality demolishes the second floor the family keeps building to accommodate its growing members after the municipality keeps denying it a building permit.
