On May 27, 2021, a legal agreement regarding the sale of the building in Wadi Hilweh, was made between Walid Ahmad At’out and Mahmoud Eghbariyya witnessed by attorney Nizar Salalha, the Wadi Hilweh Information Center (Silwanic) reported.

The property, in the Wadi Hilweh neighborhood in Silwan town, occupied East Jerusalem, was vacated by its owner on Thursday, and the property was leaked to Elad Settlement Association at dawn Friday.

At’out sold the property for a reported 4.5 Million Shekels or $1,375,000.00 U.S.

Furthermore, 20 settlers, under the full protection of the occupation police, took over an apartment, warehouses, a plot of land, and a building under construction.

The Wadi Hilweh neighborhood, located near the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque on the southern side, has more than 50 illegal settlement outposts and is the most targeted by settlement associations.

Silwanic added that there have been several incidents where the owner sells the home to another Palestinian, who then sells to colonial interests, thereby avoiding the direct responsibility of the sale of the property.
