Israeli occupation authorities do not issue building licences for Jerusalemites or allow them expand their house to keep up with the natural population increase. It is a measure to force them leave the city.

A Palestinian resident in the city of Jerusalem was obliged on Sunday by Israeli occupation to demolish his own house.

Palestinian citizen Amin abdul-Haqq from the Palestinian city of Jerusalem demolished his house by his own hands after an Israeli threat to do the job and make him pay high fees for the task.

Earlier this week Abdul-Haqq received a demolition notice issued by the Israeli occupation authorities. In the notice, he was given two choices; either the Israeli occupation demolishes the house, and he had to pay for that, or destroy his own house with his own hands.

Abdul-Haqq, who spent much time saving money and building his house, chose to destroy his house by his own because it was much cheaper than leaving it to the Israeli occupation to do so.

It is a norm that if someone received this order and did not carry out the mission alone, the Israeli occupation forces would demolish the house themselves. They will then charge him and put him in jail.
