The Israeli occupation forces forced on Saturday, October 29, 2022, a Palestinian citizen to self-demolish part of his house in the occupied city of Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Azzam Abu Asab reported that the occupation authorities forced him to demolish part of his house, in which ten people live, on Salah El-Din Street under the pretext of building without a permit.
He explained that the occupation authorities had given him ten days to demolish this part of the house, and not incur heavy fines estimated at about 30,000 shekels.
It is noteworthy that yesterday, the occupation authorities forced Iyad Al-Imam to demolish part of his 130-square-meter house, in which eight people live, in the Al-Tur neighborhood, east of occupied Jerusalem.
Usually, Jerusalemites are forced to self-demolish their homes, in order to avoid paying heavy fines in case the occupation demolishes them, sometimes reaching hundreds of thousands of shekels.
According to the biannual report of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the occupation forces demolished about 300 homes in the West Bank, including Jerusalem.
