July 11, 2017

The occupation municipality’s bulldozers demolished on Tuesday early morning a residential building owned by Mahmoud family in the village of Esawyeh under the pretext of building without a permit.

Mahmoud family explained to Wadi Hilweh Information Center that the occupation’s bulldozers along with municipality employees and dozens of Special Forces personnel surrounded their building in the village of Esawyeh and started demolishing it.

The family explained that the building consists of 4 floors with 6 apartments and two storage areas with a total area of 800 square meters; the family started construction a year ago.

The family also explained that the municipality took pictures of the building and issued a demolition order under the pretext of building without a permit. The family appointed a lawyer to follow-up with their case and to postpone the demolition order in an attempt to license the building. A hearing session was supposed to be held on Tuesday at the municipality’s court regarding their case.
