The Israeli occupation authority has ordered the demolition of four Palestinian homes in Wadi Al-Joz suburb and Shafat refugee camp in the occupied city of Jerusalem, alleging that those homes were close to the apartheid wall.
According to local sources in the occupied city, Israeli bulldozers started the demolition work in front of their owners" eyes in clear violation of human rights.
The sources added that 12 Palestinian families received demolition notices from the court a few days ago, but they were surprised by the sudden implementation of the court"s order without giving them the right to contest it.
The Quds center for economic and social rights warned that tens of buildings in the old town of the city and Silwan village could collapse due to the relentless Israeli excavations under those buildings.
In a statement it issued Sunday in reaction to the collapse of an UNRWA-run classroom in Silwan, the center explained that the collapse was a "natural" result of the continued Israeli diggings under the town.
