February 2, 2016

The occupation municipality’s bulldozers demolished on Tuesday morning a residential house owned by Eyad Abu Mahameed in the area of Abu Hummous in the village of Sur Baher south of Jerusalem. Eyad explained that the house is 200 square meters and consists of 4 bedrooms and their facilities. He started the building process 7 months ago and completely prepared yesterday. He said: “I worked on completing the house and we were supposed to bring the furniture today and move in but the bulldozers demolished it in the early morning hours without prior notice. “ He added: “My family consists of 7 individuals including 5 children where the oldest is 12 and youngest is one year old.” Abu Mahameed explained that the Israeli forces stormed into the house after removing the main gate. He pointed out that municipality crews hung a demolition notice on his house 4 months ago. He was able to postpone the demolition order and attempted to obtain a building license but was surprised with the demolition this morning.
