Israel orders eviction of Palestinian family in Silwan

Dec. 22, 2018 1:03 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 23, 2018 12:13 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli municipality of Jerusalem ordered, on Saturday, a Palestinian family in the Silwan town of occupied East Jerusalem to evict their home after a part of a wall surrounding the house collapsed.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan said that the Abu Rmeileh family woke up to the collapse of the outside wall, on Friday, which could form a serious risk to the family.

Abdullah Abu Rmeileh said that Israeli settlers, who had seized a piece of land next to the family's house, had started excavations and digging weeks ago.

He added that Israeli settlers left dirt and rocks mounds by the 4-meter wall surrounding his brother Mufid Abu Rmeileh's house.

Abu Rmeileh added that the Israeli municipality sent an engineer to inspect and assess the damages done.

The engineer acknowledged the possibility of other collapses due to the seriousness of the collapse and subsequently issued a decision to evacuate and immediately seal the house that sheltered his brother's 7-member family

Jawad Siyam from the center said that the Israeli authorities had begun excavation works under the neighborhood in 2007.
Israel frequently allows excavations and archaeological digs that threaten the structural integrity of Palestinian homes and holy sites in the area.

In August, Palestinian lands collapsed due to Israeli excavations and digging in the area.
