190920_345x230JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli authorities on Monday issued three demolition orders for residential and commercial properties in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, locals said.

Israeli police and Jerusalem municipality officers took pictures of several buildings and stores in Silwan, before hanging demolition orders on a barber shop, butcher shop and residential property, store owner Issam Dana told Ma’an.

Last week, eight demolition orders were affixed to homes belonging to the Sarafandi, al-Bana and Siyam families, as well as a car wash, in Silwan.

According to the UN, 33 percent of all Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem lack Israeli-issued building permits, potentially placing at least 93,100 residents at risk of displacement.
