The Israeli municipality said that the homes are built without the needed permission.

Palestinian sources say that around 1,200 homes and other structures owned by Palestinian families have been giving demolition orders since the start of this year.

Since Israel occupied the city of Jerusalem in 1967, it has rarely given Palestinian residents permissions to build homes, while it continue to construct settlements in and around the city, an act that is illegal by international law.
