Jerusalem Municipality Demolish Palestinian House in At-Tur Neighborhood

Print PDF

Israeli bulldozers demolished yesterday Khaled Sayyads 130-square meter house in At-Tur neighborhood in East Jerusalem. The house was home to seven family members.

Mr. Sayyad said, I built the house a year and a half ago without obtaining a building permit from the Jerusalem Municipality, given the fact that the land is organized where construction is allowed. Eight months ago, I reached a settlement with the Jerusalem Municipality through a lawyer. According to the settlement, part of the house (30 square meters) will be demolished. A week ago, I was surprised that the file was re-opened. A decision was issued, according to which another 14-square meters will be demolished.He added, Part of the house was demolished in both times. They came yesterday and demolished the house, given the fact that I met last Thursday with the lawyer, the engineer and the public prosecutor and I was not notified of the demolition.The construction of the house exceeded 200,000 shekels and the amount of $13,000 were paid for the lawyer to obtain a building permit for the house. For his part, JCSERs Director General, said, The house demolition campaign in East Jerusalem during last week was unprecedented, as if Israel is putting the final touches for the Judaization of the city. During the last three years, there has been an accelerating pressure on East Jerusalems Arab residents to force them to leave their homeland.JCSER's Director called for radical and immediate solutions to help Palestinian Jerusalemites remain steadfast in their homeland.
