Israel to Demolish 5 Houses and Shop in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, October 27, 2013 (WAFA) – The Israeli West Jerusalem Municipality Sunday issued demolition orders for five Palestinian-owned houses and a shop in Wadi Hilweh area in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, according to Wadi Hilweh information center.

The center said that a municipality staff raided the five houses and the shop and handed their owners the demolitions orders under the pretext of “being built without a permit.”

The demolition of these houses will displace at least 14 Palestinians.
