Palestinian ordered to demolish own house in Old Jerusalem

Jerusalem – Ma’an – Israeli authorities ordered a Palestinian to demolish his own home in the Old City of Jerusalem on Tuesday.

Muhammad Ghosheh said police and a demolition crew from the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem arrived at his house in the morning, threatening him with a 100,000 Israeli shekel (25,125 US dollar) fine if he did not destroy the house.

Hundreds of Palestinian-owned structures in occupied East Jerusalem are threatened with demolition on the grounds that they are built without Israeli-issued construction permits, which are routinely denied to Palestinian residents.

The Palestinian Minister of Jerusalem Affairs, Hatem Abdul Qader, arrived at the scene in the Khan Az-Zeit market and denounced the demolition as a crime committed in defiance of US and international pressure.

Abdul Qader was briefly from entering the house prevented by Israeli police, but was ultimately allowed in before the demolition was carried out.

He also asserted that the building will be rebuilt, and noted that the “occupation municipality” recently began to reject all Palestinian applications for building permits in the Old City while granting permits to Israeli settlers to build on property they have taken over.
