The occupation demolishes a house in Silwan

The official news agency reported this morning, Tuesday, that the occupation municipality's crews in Jerusalem demolished a house in Silwan, south of Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the pretext of not licensing, explaining that the house belonged to the Al-Rajabi family.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan said that the occupation municipality's crews, accompanied by large forces of special units and police, stormed the Al-Bustan neighborhood in the town, completely surrounded the house of Mohammed al-Rajabi, closed several entrances leading to it, and then proceeded with a manual demolition of the building.

The Al-Rajabi family explained that the occupation municipality's crews began the process of demolishing their house with manual demolition mechanisms, as there is no possibility for their vehicles to reach the site of the house, and in the meantime they cut the roofs of the house, which is a new demolition method.

She added, that since the construction of her house less than two months ago, the occupation municipality pursued her by storming the house several times, and issuing an administrative demolition decision without the possibility to freeze it.

The Occupation Court also gave the family a deadline that expired last week to implement the decision to demolish them, but the family refused this so that the self-demolition would not be a precedent used in the Al-Bustan neighborhood, whose homes are threatened with demolition, in favor of settlement projects.
