JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces and civil administration officers handed demolition and eviction orders to Palestinian families in East Jerusalem on Wednesday.

Popular committee spokesman Hani Halabiya told Ma'an that civil administration officers delivered the orders to families in the Jabal al-Baba neighborhood east of al-Ezariya.

Bedouins from the Jahalin tribe live in homes made of steel, wood and tin boards as well as tents in Jabal al-Baba hill, Halabiya said.

He highlighted that civil administration officers with Israeli troops ordered the families to demolish 18 dwellings measuring 80 square meters each. Families were also notified that they must stop construction of four more steel structures.

Israeli forces, added Halabiya, demolished seven structures in Jabal al-Baba a week ago. Four structures were used as dwellings and three were cattle farms. The Israelis cited construction without license as pretext for demolition.

Israel is trying to displace the community of Jabal al-Baba to expand the nearby settlement of Maale Adumim.

In the 1950s, the al-Jahalin community was forcibly displaced from its ancestral home in the Negev desert and resettled east of Jerusalem.

Israeli forces displaced groups of the community in the 1990s to make way for the Maale Adumim settlement.

I am so surprised that a people that have had millennia of homelessness and oppression, can not show compassion to the people around them who are suffering the same. You need to work at making Palestinians and ALL Israeli Arabs your fellow citizens.. To carry on the persecution of your neighbours will eventually bring devastation down on your heads.. I want to see a strong Israel. You are a Beautiful people and I fear for your continued peaceful existence .
