JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Five families in the Silwan neighborhood of East Jerusalem were give home demolition notices by Jerusalem municipality authorities on Wednesday, including some set to take effect within 48 hours.

Director of the Silwan-based Wadi Hilweh Information Center Jawad Siyam told Ma'an that Khalid al-Zeir and his father received demolition warrants, and three more warrants were delivered to other members of the Siyam family.

Some of the warranted families were notified that their houses would be demolished in 48 hours.

Siyam added that municipality inspectors entered the al-Abbasiyya area of Silwan and delivered a warrant to Khalid al-Zeir notifying him that a six-square-meter brick structure with a tin roof would be demolished.

Siyam added that al-Zeir had built the tin-roofed room after the municipality previously demolished his house.

Also on Wednesday, Israeli authorities demolished three Palestinian homes in different neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, leaving 25 people homeless.

Israel destroyed more than 663 Palestinian properties in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2013, displacing 1101 people, according to UNOCHA.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. It has demolished at least 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures since occupying the West Bank in 1967, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

- Whether Palestinians can, or cannot defend themselves, and
whether this is, or is not program to steal land from them, and
whether it seems disgusting & cruel, EVERY STATE ENFORCES LAWS,
or soon none obey them, and anarchy becomes everyone's way of life !!
- So, try to remember the facts leading up to this situation, where
it was the "owner's" Lawless, Bad Decision, or Desperate Gamble,
of BUILDING IN THE state's CAPITAL, WITHOUT A state building PERMIT.
