Israeli municipality forces Palestinian family to demolish their home in Jerusalem

A Palestinian family from the Silwan neighborhood in Jerusalem was forced today to demolish their own home by the Israeli municipality.

Members of the Simrin family said they were forced to demolish their own home after the Israeli municipality issued a demolition order against it under the pretext it was built without a permit.

The family carried out the demolition in order to avoid paying unreasonable demolition costs to the Israeli municipality in the event the municipality carried out it.
