JERUSALEM, Wednesday, May 10, 2023 (WAFA) – Israel bulldozers demolished two Palestinian-owned apartments in the town of Jabal al-Mukabber, in the occupied city of Jerusalem, under the pretext that they were built without a permit.

According to the sources, the two apartments were 220 square meters each, owned by brothers Feras and Ali Shuqeirat, and inhabited by 10 people, mostly children.

Feras said that he had received a demolition notice from the Israeli authorities last February and that all the attempts to prevent the demolition of his apartment and his brother Ali’s apartment were unsuccessful.

He pointed out that the occupation municipality court issued a decision about two months ago to freeze the demolition decision until next September, but he and his brother were informed by the lawyer last week that the municipality had submitted a request to the court to cancel the freezing decision, and the court approved the demolition.
