The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished on Monday a two-story house owned by Hatem Abu Mayaleh in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Isawiyya.
Mohammad Abu al-Humus, head of the Isawiyya Residents’ Follow Up Committee, told WAFA news agency that a large Israeli occupation force cordoned off the area where the house is located as a bulldozer proceeded to tear down the Abu Mayaleh building.
This is the fourth time the Abu Mayaleh house is being demolished for construction without a permit.
The owner of the house suffers from paraplegia paralysis caused in 2009 when he fell and broke his spine during one of the times the municipality was demolishing his house.
