September 4, 2019

On Wednesday evening, the Israeli occupation forces arrested two young men from the village of Issawiya in Jerusalem.

Mohammed Abu Hummos, a member of the follow-up committee in Issawiya, said that the Israeli occupation forces stormed the center of the village and arrested Ahmed Abed Atyeh and Hamido Alaa Derbas, and turned them for investigation.

On the other hand, the Jerusalemite Jamil Masalmeh self-demolished his house in Wadi Al-Rababeh neighborhood in Silwan, under the pretext of building without a permit.

Masalmeh said that the municipal crews broke into his house and informed him orally that the building must be completely demolished within 24 hours. Otherwise, a fine of 84,000 shekels will be imposed, pointing out that his 50-square meter house has been in existence for 20 years, where 5 individuals live.
