IOF demolish East Jerusalem home this morning

PNN/ Jerusalem/

Israeli occupation bulldozers Wednesday morning demolished the home of Nassar family in Silwan neighborhood, East Jerusalem, under the pretext of the family having no permit to build.

Local sources said that the occupation bulldozers demolished the bungalow, after besieging the site and preventing people from approaching.

The Israeli occupation municipality in Jerusalem Wednesday approved the construction of 90 settlement units in Har Home settlement south Jerusalem.

This is in addition to last October when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave orders for the construction of 1,060 new settlement units in two settlements in East Jerusalem; 660 new units in ‘Ramot Shlomo’, and 400 in ‘Har Homa’, in addition to an infrastructure project of 12 new settlement roads in the West Bank.

At the same time, Israeli forces continue with their demolitions of Palestinians’ homes in East Jerusalem.

On May 11, an Israeli court ordered the evacuation and demolition of 23 buildings in a northern Jerusalem neighborhood alongside a century-old Islamic shrine by Israeli forces in Nablus.
