Israeli soldiers forced, on Tuesday evening, three Palestinians to demolish a home and two stores in Jabal al-Mokabber and Shu’fat refugee camp, in the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers forced Mohammad Ali to demolish his home in Shu’fat refugee camp, in Jerusalem, for the second time, in addition to forcing another Palestinian to demolish his shop.

The soldier also forced Malek Khalayla to demolish his under-construction shop in the Jabal al-Mokabber neighborhood, southeast of Jerusalem.


The army claims the structures were built without a permit from the City Council in occupied Jerusalem.

On Wednesday at dawn, the soldiers invaded the Sheikh Jarrah Palestinian neighborhood in Jerusalem, and demolished two homes, in addition to abducting 27 Palestinians, including six members of the Salhiyya family.

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.

All of 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 in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Humanitarian Law.
