‘Israel’ demolished 165 houses in Jerusalem this year

Ramallah (QNN)- An Israeli NGO said that Israeli authorities demolished 165 houses in occupied Jerusalem this year under the pretext of being build without permission.

Spokesperson for B’Tselem organization, Kareem Jobran, said the Israeli municipality has scaled up its house demolition policy and refused to reveal its charts, which organize Palestinians’ house construction in occupied Jerusalem.

Jobran stated that in addition to 165 houses that were demolished, the Israelis imposed large fines on Palestinians in the city, which pushed many of them to demolish their houses.

He also said that the Israelis canceled all the old construction charts, which were adopted by Jordan before the Israeli occupation of the city, and declared most Palestinian areas natural reserves and archaeological sites to demolish Palestinians’ houses and prevent them from construction.
