Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Israeli municipality of occupied Jerusalem forced a Palestinian man to demolish his house in Jabal Al Mukabbir.
The Information Center of Wadi Hilweh reported that the occupation state had forced Sayel Ja’abis to demolish his own house four years ago under the pretext of being built without permission.
The municipality has been ever since sending demolition orders to him, but he succeeded to delay them. The municipality gave Ja’abis until Sunday to demolish his house.
He explained that he has to demolish the house himself to avoid the very expensive costs that he will need to pay if the Israelis demolish it instead.
The municipality forced nearly 50 Palestinians to demolish their own houses in 2019.
The occupation state prevents native Palestinians from building new houses or renovating old ones in Jerusalem. Meanwhile, it increases settlement expansion throughout Jerusalem and Palestine.
