On Monday, the Israeli army, and the City Council in occupied Jerusalem, forced a Palestinian man to demolish his under-construction home in Jabal al-Mokabber, in the city.

Media sources said the soldiers forced Amjad Mosallam Ja’abis to demolish him property under the pretext of being built without a permit.

They added that the property is in the al-Bashir (The American Street) in Jabal al-Mokabber.

The Palestinian was only given five days to demolish his property or face excessively high fines and fees if the city destroys the property using its own workers and equipment.

Israel’s policy of home demolitions is an illegal act of collective punishment that violates International Law and various international treaties.

Many Palestinians in the occupied city resort to constructing their homes without permits due to Israel’s continued refusal to issue these permits, while the expanding families find themselves living in small homes or apartments.

This happens while Israel continues to build and expand its illegal, segregated colonies in the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem, in direct violation of International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions.
