Israeli Court rejects appeal against demolition of 16 buildings in East Jerusalem’s Wadi al-Hummus


JERUSALEM, Sunday, June 30, 2019 (WAFA) – The Israeli Supreme Court dismissed an appeal filed by Palestinian residents against the demolition of 16 apartment buildings in Wadi al-Hummus area of Sur Baher neighborhood, southeast of occupied Jerusalem, said a local official.

Hamada Hamada, the head of Wadi al-Hummus Committee, told WAFA the Israeli Supreme Court rejected an appeal filed by Wadi al-Hummus residents against the demolition of 16 buildings comprised of 100 apartments, citing its close proximity to the security barrier.

To be noted, the buildings slated for demolition are located in areas classified as (a), under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, where building permits are obtained from the Palestinian Ministry of Local Government.

The court’s dismissal of the appeal gives residents until the 18th of the next month of July to demolish the buildings or they would face the large demolition costs and fines charged by the occupation’s municipality.
