 The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem today ordered the demolition of two Palestinian-owned homes in an occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood, according to the owners.

The homes, each around 60-square meters in area, belong to two brothers from the Abu Mayaleh family and are located in Ras el-Amoud neighborhood.

The family told WAFA that staff from the Israeli municipality handed Amer and Ammar Abu Mayaleh demolition orders against their apartments in the two-story building under the pretext they were built without a permit.

Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem say they are forced to build without a permit because getting one from the Israeli municipality is an almost impossible.
