Israeli municipality of Jerusalem intends to demolish Palestinians houses

76 people at risk of homelessness in Silwan

Jerusalem24 – The Palestinian official news agency “Wafa” reported that the Israeli municipality in West Jerusalem has issued demolition notices against 13 inhabited Palestinian houses in Silwan, a neighborhood of East Jerusalem, today, said Fakhri Abu Diab, member of the Silwan Defense Committee.

He stated that the municipality ordered the demolition of the houses under the pretext that they were built without a permit, noting that there are also unauthorized houses taken over and illegally inhabited by Israeli settlers in the same area but did not receive any demolition orders.

Abu Diab said that the Palestinian houses were built over 10 years ago and are inhabited by 76 people, mostly children and women.
