Jerusalem Municipality demolished a family’s Home in East Jerusalem

This morning, 17 Oct. 2018, at about 6:00 A.M., Jerusalem Municipality personnel, accompanied by Police and Border Police officers and equipped with a bulldozer, came to the  Jabal al-Mukabber neighborhood of East Jerusalem. The forces demolished the home of a family of eight, four of them children.

The Jerusalem Municipality deliberately avoids preparing detailed urban building plans (UBPs), which are the only avenue for obtaining building permits, for the Palestinian neighborhoods in East Jerusalem. The result is a severe shortage of homes, public buildings, infrastructure and leisure and commercial facilities. This has left the residents no choice but to build without permits and risk demolition.
