September 04, 2022

The Israeli occupation authorities forced a Palestinian family from occupied Jerusalem, to demolish its home in Ras al-Amoud neighborhood in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) said the Israeli occupation authorities informed Hadiya family that it either demolishes its own home or face exorbitant fines and fees if the occupation's municipality does so.

The family tried to obtain all needed permits and filed costly appeals to save the property, built twelve years earlier, but to no avail, Silwanic added.

Three family used to live in the 120-square/meter home, and the owners were recently informed that they have just a few days to demolish the property or face the consequences.
