Jerusalem’s Israeli municipality demolishes Palestinian house in the occupied city


JERUSALEM, Tuesday, September 03, 2019 (WAFA) – The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished today a Palestinian-owned house in al-Tur neighborhood of the occupied city under the pretext it was built without a permit, according to the house owner Mohammad Abu al-Hawa.

He told WAFA that Israeli municipality demolished his 90 square meter, one story house under the pretext he did not have a building permit.

He said that the Israeli authorities handed him a demolition order 15 days ago, noting that the house is close to the main street in the neighborhood.

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