June 30, 2016

Joint crews of occupation municipality and Israeli forces raided last Thursday Al-Bustan neighborhood in Silwan and placed an eviction notice on the house of Dr Adel Bashir before demolishing it under the pretext of building without a permit.

Fakhri Abu Diab, member of the Committee of protecting property and real estate in Silwan, explained that municipality employees placed the order on Bashir family house in Silwan and gave the family 10 days before executing the demolition (after Eid Al-Fiter).

Abu Diab added that the municipality previously demolished the house in 2005 and it was rebuilt again after several years.

He also mentioned that the house of Bashir family is one of the houses of Al-Bustan neighborhood at risk of being demolished in favor of “Biblical Parks” which is also known as “David’s Park”.
