Israeli Occupation Forces Palestinian Woman to Self-Demolish Her home in Jerusalem 

M.S | DOP -


The Israeli occupation forces forced on Sunday, September 11, 2022, a Palestinian woman to demolish her house in the town of Silwan, in occupied Jerusalem.


Local sources reported that the Israeli municipality forced the Palestinian Nasreen Abu Tayeh to self-demolish her house in the Batn al-Hawa neighborhood in Silwan, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, under the pretext of building without a permit.


Abu Tayeh said that she was forced to demolish her house, which shelters her four orphaned children, to avoid paying heavy fines if the Israeli occupation mechanisms demolish it.


The Israeli occupation practices the policy of demolishing Palestinian homes and properties since its establishment in 1948. Since that time, it has destroyed more than 500 Palestinian villages and towns.
