Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem

The Israeli occupation municipality on Friday forced a Jerusalemite citizen to demolish his own house in Jabel al-Mukaber neighborhood at the pretext of unlicensed construction.

Ammar Nassar, the homeowner, had to demolish the house after the municipality gave him until next Tuesday to raze it, or else he would have paid exorbitant money to the Israeli occupation authority if it had carried out the demolition.

A family of six individuals, including four children, was living in the house and they have no other place to live in.

The municipality had already forced Ammar’s brothers, Maher and Mohamed, to demolish their own homes in the same neighborhood last week. The measure led to the displacement of 15 individuals, including 11 children.
