Israeli sources said that the Israeli police and the “City Council” in the occupied capital, Jerusalem, are preparing to demolish a residential building housing more than 100 Palestinians, including children, in Silwan town, south of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The sources said the building would likely be demolished on Tuesday or Wednesday, adding the destruction could take up to 24 hours.

The four-story building houses twelve families of at least 100 Palestinians, who will be rendered homeless.

More than 500 police officers and soldiers will demolish the property and encircle the entire area after receiving the green light from the fanatic, right-wing “National Security Minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir of the extremist, anti-Palestinian, “Jewish Power Party.”

Israeli sources quoted the Jerusalem Municipality claiming that it “routinely demolishes houses under the provision of the law.”

Israel delayed the demolition of the property for several years due to international pressure, but despite attempts by various world leaders, Ben-Gvir said he would demolish the building to “enforce the law.”

Israel is anticipating a serious deterioration in the security situation in the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem, and even the probability of another war on Gaza, after Palestinian armed resistance groups retaliate to the demolition and displacement.

Ben-Gvir, who as a teenager stole the Cadillac emblem from the car of the then-Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin, just weeks before the latter was assassinated, also had many run-ins with the Israeli police and legal system, including when he was convicted of racism and incitement, interfering with a police officer while performing his duty, support for the Kach terrorist organization, founded by fanatic Meir Kahane, and was even barred from military service in the Israeli occupation army after the military of his own country deemed him too dangerous to draft when he was only 18.

Israel’s illegal home demolition policy is internationally prohibited; according to Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, “No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and, likewise, all measures of intimidation or terrorism are prohibited. Pillage is prohibited. Reprisals against protected persons and their property are prohibited.”

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 under various allegations meant to prevent the expansion of Palestinian towns and neighborhoods.

Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”
