Israeli authorities raze three-story house, displace its residents in Jerusalem

Days of Palestine – Jerusalem – The Israeli occupation authority on Monday morning displaced three Palestinian families after demolishing their three-story building in the East Jerusalem district of Issawiya at the pretext of unlicensed construction.

According to local sources, dozens of police officers cordoned off the area where the building was located before bulldozers embarked on knocking down the building.

The building belonged to a Jerusalemite citizen called Yassin Mustafa, who built it about 10 years ago.

Three families, including 20 individuals and one with special needs, lived in that building.

The Jerusalemites have no choice but to build without licenses because there are no structural maps that respond to the natural increase in their numbers, and for that reason, they are denied house permits.

The Israeli occupation authority also imposes building restrictions on the Palestinian natives in Jerusalem and makes it hard for them to obtain construction licenses.

Israel’s systematic demolition of Palestinian homes in Occupied Jerusalem is believed to be aimed at psychologically destroying the Jerusalemite families in an attempt to force them to move from the holy city.
