Israeli police issue demolition notices against dozens of buildings in Occupied Jerusalem

Monday 27-May-2024


Israeli occupation police handed out dozens of demolition notifications to Palestinian owners of commercial shops in the town of Ram, northeast of Occupied Jerusalem, giving them only two weeks to evacuate.

Jerusalem sources said on Monday that the police demolition spree is aimed at expanding the street between the Abu al-Shahid roundabout near the Qalandiya checkpoint and the Jaba barrier northeast of Jerusalem.

One of the shop owners, Wadi Al-Halawani, said he was shocked to know that the demolition decision affects the entire neighborhood which consists of more than 20 houses and over 40 stores, especially that the owners do not have any legal issues regarding construction permits.

Other owners including Muhammad Al-Amouri and Tamer Al -Halawani, denounced the demolition orders, stressing that some of the notified facilities were established 20 years ago and do not constitute any threat or cause any harm to the street.
