Silwan- A Jerusalemite self-demolishes his house
March 2, 2019


The occupation municipality forced the Jerusalemite Hussam Abbasi to self-demolish his house in the village of Silwan, under the pretext of building without a permit.

Abbasi explained that the occupation municipality issued a decision to demolish his house in Ras al-Amoud neighborhood in Silwan, and informed him that he should implement the demolition order by himself. Otherwise, the municipality’s bulldozers and crews will implement the decision within two weeks and he has to pay the demolition fees up to 80,000 shekels.

Abbasi said he built the 70-square meter house about a year ago, a third floor in his family's residential building, where he and his wife and child live.
