A Palestinian citizen from the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal al-Mukabir today as forced on tearing down his own home.
The homeowner, Nasser Abu Ze’eter, was informed by the municipality that he had to demolish his home because he did not have a building permit, which is nearly impossible to obtain under current Israeli prerequisites.

Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem are frequently forced to build without a permit because the Israeli municipality rarely issues permits for the city’s Palestinian citizens as a way to reduce their number in the city, by forcing them to leave it and find accommodation elsewhere.
