The Israeli army forced Saturday, a Palestinian to demolish his under-construction home in Wadi ar-Rababa neighborhood, in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) said the home is owned by Ahmad Younes Abu Hadwan, and was built on his land.

Silwanic added that Abu Hadwan had to demolish his 50 square/meter under construction home using basic handheld tools to avoid the excessively high fines and fees, especially if the City Council in occupied Jerusalem uses its workers and equipment.
