OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority has forced Basem Hijazi to demolish part of his home in Abbasiya suburb in Silwan town to the south of the Aqsa Mosque.

Hijazi said that the IOA-controlled municipality of Jerusalem told him he has to raze a ten square meter part of his home, which he had recently added to his 55 square meter home.

He said that he received a notice from the municipality two days ago also telling him that he has to pay a fine of 15,000 shekels.

Hijazi recalled that the municipality had previously asked him to remove the roof of that section and forced him to pay a fine of 7,500 shekels, which he did but the municipality now ordered him to tear down the entire ten square meter structure.
