An attempt to demolish an East Jerusalem Home

Print PDF

On the new developments front, an Israeli occupation force attempted to demolish a house in Dahiyat Alsalam district of Occupied Jerusalem and the homeowner was able to attain a last minute court order to stop the demolition of his home for two weeks conditional that he takes serious steps in obtaining a building permit.

In addition, the court issued an 80,000 NIS fine on the homeowner who supports a family of seven. Just before the Israeli court order was issued the occupation forces have physically cut off electrical wiring to the house and threw his furniture out of the house making way to demolish the house, said the homeowner.

Based on JCSER figures, 180 homes have been demolished in Occupied Jerusalem since the beginning of 2004, which have uprooted hundreds of Palestinian Jerusalemites residing in Occupied East Jerusalem. The Center has noted that East Jerusalem has witnessed the largest wave of house demolitions this year since the beginning of the Intifada. In addition, the occupying authorities have significantly intensified their ethnic cleansing practices under the pretext of illegal building in Occupied East Jerusalem
