Silwan: Demolishing a residential room in the neighborhood of Al-Thori
December 21, 2016

The occupation municipality’s bulldozers demolished on Wednesday early morning a residential room and its facilities in the neighborhood of Al-Thori in Silwan under the pretext of building without a permit.

Occupation forces along with municipality crews raided the house of Eyas Zaghal and completely surrounded it and prevented the residents from leaving. They demolished a residential room and its facilities that Zaghal had built 6 months ago for his son Hussein.

Eyas Zaghal explained that the room is 55 square meters and is built from brick and roofed with reinforced metal sheets.

Zaghal explained that the municipality crews recently raided the establishment several times and handed him a demolition order under the pretext of building without a permit. Accordingly, he hired a lawyer to follow-up with the case and to postpone the demolition order but was surprised by the demolition operation that was executed Wednesday morning.
