The Zionist occupation regime is the world’s most brazen entity.

‘Israeli’ occupation forces forced two Palestinian brothers to tear down their own home in the occupied city of al-Quds, a local media report said.

The Palestinian Information Center reported on Sunday that ‘Israeli’ occupation authorities left Palestinian brothers Mohamed and Mustafa al-Salayma no choice but to demolish their two-story apartment building in Silwan town, a predominantly Palestinian neighborhood on the outskirts of the Old City of al Quds.

The municipality’s order to raze the building was issued under the pretext of lacking the necessary construction license, which is almost impossible to obtain.

The municipality ordered them to raze their building by themselves, otherwise, demolition crews from the municipality would do the job, and in that case, the two brothers would have to pay the sum of 15,000 US dollars as demolition costs.

The brothers said that they had tried multiple times to obtain the construction permit from the occupation regime but were always denied permission.

The Zionist regime routinely demolishes Palestinian houses in the occupied West Bank, claiming that the structures have been built without permits, which are nearly impossible to obtain. They also sometimes order Palestinian owners to demolish their own houses or pay the costs of the demolition if they do not.
