Fakhri Abu Diab, member of the Committee for Defending Lands of Silwan, in East Jerusalem, stated that the Jerusalem City Council claims that the home was built without a construction permit.

Abu Diab added that a planned settler-only road will lead to the illegal annexation of Nawal’s land; therefore, her home will also be demolished in the process.

The Israeli Authorities gave Nawal five months to demolish her own home and leave
the area despite the fact that she officially and legally owns the land and the home in question. She lives in her home with her ten family members.

She stated that her plight started more than ten years ago when Israel demolished her home, where she lived with her children and grandchildren, an issue that forced her to move to a plot of land she owns in the area.

“But the occupation did not leave us alone”, she said, “Now they want to remove us, once again, and demolish our residence”.

The family of Nawal was displaced from the Negev when Israel was established in historic Palestine in 1948. After Israel occupied the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem in 1967, the family home was demolished.

“Now they want to demolish our home again”, she said, “I don’t know where to go, they want to take over my land, and displace us, once again”.
