February 8, 2019


On Friday, Ahmed Mahmoud Obeidat self-demolished his home and commercial facility in the village of Jabal Al-Mukabber following a decision by the occupation municipality.

Obeidat told Wadi Hilweh Information Center that he was forced to implement the decision and demolish his house and commercial facility with his hand, in order to avoid paying the demolition fees and fines for the municipality.

Obeidat added that he demolished his 40-square meter house, an external living room built from tin plates, and a 30 square meter commercial facility using hand tools; they were built in 2003.

Obeidat explained that he was living with his wife and four children in the house, and they are now homeless after the demolition.
