JCSER: Demolition of two buildings in Qalandia is a violation of housing and citizenship rights

The Jerusalem Center for Social & Economic Rights (JCSER) condemns the demolition of two buildings in Qalandia refugee camp, north of Occupied Jerusalem, viewing it as a grave violation of housing and citizenship rights.

 

 

The first building had three floors, each with a total area of 750 square meters. It belonged to Thamin Fayyaleh and Jamal Al-Joulani. Mr. Fayyaleh is responsible for ten family members, while Mr. Al-Joulani is responsible for six

 

The second building belonged to Ahmad Taher Hashimeh, who is responsible for eight family members.

 

 

The building consisted of two apartments, and had a total area of 300 square meters.

The demolition, which took place under the protection of a number of units of the Israeli army, is primarily connected to the construction of what is known as the security fence being built north of Occupied Jerusalem, particularly in the area surrounding Qalandia Airport.The two buildings are less than 200 meters away from the security fence and a further 37 houses are now threatened with demolition.

They are part of a strip located within what is known as Al-Mattar Quarter.The Center refuted Israels claims that the houses were demolished due to building law violations by the homeowners, describing these claims as a pretext to create new facts on the ground.

The demolition of these two buildings in Qalandia Refugee Camp is the first since the beginning of 2003. According to data available from the Center, over 60 houses were demolished in Jerusalem in 2002.
