Israel issues demolition notice against building near Jerusalem

JERUSALEM: Israeli occupation forces Tuesday issued a notice ordering the demolition of a five-storey residential building in Shuafat refugee camp, north of occupied Jerusalem.

Local sources said that the occupation forces stormed a building owned by local resident Khalil Abu Mayaleh and handed him a notice to demolish the building under the pretext of building without a license.

The building consists of five residential apartments.

In a related context, the occupation forces stormed the village of Al-Issawiya, ransacked the house of Yasser Darwish, a member of the Fatah movement in Jerusalem, and attacked his family.

This raid comes one day following Darwish’s release. He was detained at the beginning of this week and his two sons, Yasser and Muhammad, were assaulted and injured after being shot with rubber bullets.
