Residents told Ma’an’s correspondent that some of these families had received the same notices before, such as the owner of the As-Sunbula building in the Nusaiba neighborhood, which consists of 24 apartments, and a building owned by Thamin Abu Qabalah in Beit Hanina, north of Jerusalem, which has 15 apartments.
New demolition orders were handed over to Muhammad Abu Khdeir related to a 12-apartment building he owns in Shu’fat, north of Jerusalem. Another 12-room block known as the Ghayth building was also served in Beit Hanina. Two new demolition orders were also handed over to two families living in the Wadi Qaddoum neighborhood in Silwan, south of Jerusalem. source
Another Jerusalem resident was forced to demolish part of his own home on Friday, following orders from the Israeli municipal council of Jerusalem.
The self-demolition of Muhammad Najib Al-Ju’ba’s 25-square-meter home addition on Virgin Street near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City of Jerusalem marks the second week in a row Palestinians in Jerusalem have had to tear down their own homes.
Last week two self-demolitions were ordered, and on Friday Al-Ju’ba was faced with self-demolition or paying a 13,000 shekel fine for illegally constructing an extra room on his home. Paying the fine would not ensure a permit for the structure, and may simply postpone its destruction.
The house was built more than 50 years ago and is now home to eight. Twelve years ago, Al-Ju’ba built an additional room to accommodate his growing family. source
