Jerusalem court to look into Silwan home demolitions

May 24, 2011 8:55 P.M. (Updated: May 25, 2011 3:35 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israel's central court in Jerusalem was scheduled to look into home demolitions in Al-Bustan neighborhood in East Jerusalem’s Silwan area Tuesday.

A court hearing for the case was scheduled earlier and was postponed until Tuesday.

Member of the local committee to defend Silwan and Al-Bustan neighborhood Abdul-Karim Abu Sneinan told Ma’an that the postponement was an attempt to put pressure on the residents of Al-Bustan neighborhood.

The Israeli municipal council of Jerusalem, he explained, wants to enforce its plans to displace them, however, all residents and defense committees insist on staying in their homes.
