The municipality’s bulldozers demolished a residential house in the neighbourhood of Jabal Al-Mukabber (Al-Jiser area) in the city of Jerusalem. According to the information available to Wadi Hilweh Information Center, the house is owned by Mohammad Hassan Nazeeleh “Ja’afra” and has been established for 18 years. Ja’afra said that the 120-square meters house which consists of 5 rooms and their facilities was built 18 years ago and is a home for 7 individuals. A 30-thousand NIS building violation fee was imposed on the house and the last court session was held two years ago and the family has been trying to obtain a building permit since; note that the forces came to demolish the house without prior notice. Ja’afra explained that the soldiers assaulted him and severely beat him while he was leaving his house and the house was demolished on top of a big part of their furniture. In a related matter, the municipality’s bulldozers demolished a trailer owned by Mohammad Hasan Jo’beh in Al-Tur; note that the forces completely surrounded the area and broke the door of the trailer without the presence of the owner and then emptied it and carried out the demolition. Ali Jo’beh, Mohammad’s brother said that they were surprised when a large force surrounded the area and then the municipality crews started emptying the trailer which was used as storage without their knowledge. When they arrived, they offered to empty the trailer by themselves and then self-demolish it but they refused; note that the municipality imposed a fee of 20-thousand NIS on the family in 2007 on another trailer which was then removed.
