Gaza17July3OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-A Palestinian citizen was forced to knock down his own shop in Occupied Jerusalem after Israeli municipal crews threatened to fine him.

Palestinian citizen Hussein al-Kiswani said he demolished his own shop in Beit Hanina, north of Occupied Jerusalem, for fear of being fined by the Israeli occupation authorities.

Al-Kiswani said the occupation authorities turned down his appeals to cancel a demolition notification targeting his shop.

Israeli municipal crews threatened to reduce his shop to rubble and subject him to a steep fine in case he does not carry out the demolition on his own.

The targeted shop covers an area of 100 square meters and is worth over $100,000.

Al-Kiswani slammed the demolition order as arbitrary and oppressive, saying: “The Israelis don’t care an inch about us. They did not pay a heed to our appeals for a permit.”
