OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Maqdesi institution for social development has condemned the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) for ordering a Jerusalemite citizen to demolish part of his home.
It said in a statement on Monday that the IOA told Khalil Dabash, who lives in Sour Baher in occupied Jerusalem, that he has to tear down an addendum.
It said that the Israeli interior ministry refused to consider his request for a building permit without first razing the 75-square meter area added to his first floor then turning the entire floor into a garage.
Dabash demolished part of the addition in late 2010 but the ministry and the municipality were not satisfied and said that all added area should be demolished.
Dabash has a family of 24 members half of them children who would be rendered homeless if he was forced to raze his house.
