Israel forces Palestinian to demolish his and his daughter’s homes

A Palestinian father was forced to demolish his own home in occupied East Jerusalem, as well as that of his daughter, as Israeli authorities maintain their discriminatory housing policies in the city.

Mustafa Subah, an automobile mechanic, told his story to Haaretz reporters “on the ruins of his home”. A few weeks previously, a 15-year legal battle that cost him around 400,000 shekels ($110,220) came to an end when “he was compelled to demolish his and his daughter’s homes with his own hands”.

His daughter Zinab, along with her husband and three children, have now moved into “cramped conditions in the home of her mother-in-law”. Mustafa, meanwhile, along with his wife and three children who remain at home, are “squeezed into the two rooms of the original structure, waiting in dread to hear whether they will have to raze that as well”.
