March 15, 2016

The occupation municipality’s crews raided on Tuesday two houses owned by Abu Sal’oum family in the neighborhood of Al-Thori in Silwan and handed them administrative demolition orders for their homes under the pretext of building without a permit. 
Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that municipality’s crews handed a demolition order to Ismaeel Abu Sal’oum for his apartment which is located in a 3-storey building, and another order to a nearby home owned by his nephew Mohammad. He pointed out that both homes have been established since 1995 and the families have paid “building violation fees and fines” and also paid lawyers and engineers in an attempt to obtain a permit but to no avail. 
Ismaeel’s apartment is 100 square meters where 7 individuals live while his nephew’s apartment is 45 square meters with 4 people living in it. 
The occupation forces also raided the house of Sami Khader Rajabi in the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan and ascended on its roof under the pretext of “throwing stones”.
