Israeli soldiers demolished, Wednesday, a Palestinian home in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank, the Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) has reported.

Silwanic said the soldiers invaded the town, before demolishing the home of Sultan Hlesi, the Wadi Hilweh area in Silwan, under the pretext of being built without a permit.

Sultan said he built his sixty square/meter home in the year 2014 and has been living in it with his wife and four children between the ages of six and thirteen.

He added that the City Council in occupied Jerusalem has since been issuing fines and fees amounting to more than 35.000 Shekels.

It is worth mentioning that the army used special tools to cut the house and demolish it as heavy vehicles, such as bulldozers, cannot reach the area.

While Israel continues to build and expand its illegal colonies, Palestinian communities and towns, in occupied Jerusalem, and various areas in the occupied West Bank, continue to be denied the right to build homes and property. Israel has been issuing dozens of demolition orders against existing Palestinian homes and property, including under-construction structures, and has already demolished many of them.
