Palestinian Forced To Demolish His Own Home In Jerusalem
Israeli authorities forced Mahmoud Aramin to demolish his house in East Jerusalem Sunday, or risk having it destroyed by an Israeli bulldozer, which would have resulted in an exorbitant fine.
Aramin had already paid thousands of dollars in fines to the Jerusalem municipality in monthly installments, for having built an 'unlicensed' house in East Jerusalem. Palestinians who live in East Jerusalem have not been granted building permits since 1967, and face frequent demolitions of their homes by Israeli authorities.
