Mohammad Younes Hussein Abu Tayeh self-demolished on Saturday parts of his home in the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan under the pretext of building without a permit.

Abu Tayeh explained that he started adding a restroom and a kitchen to his 14-square meters home but the municipality raided his home and ordered him to demolish them; he received an administrative demolition order.

Abu Tayeh added that the added parts were built from bricks and roofed with tin plates.

Municipality crews along with occupation forces also raided the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan on Saturday morning and distributed demolition orders to several residential establishments.
