Israeli forces issue orders to access East Jerusalem rooftops

Sept. 28, 2013 5:58 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 29, 2013 2:27 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Saturday handed notices to several residents in the al-Sadiyya neighborhood in Jerusalem's Old City, giving Israeli forces permission to access the rooftops of their houses, locals said.

Local resident Inas Ali Mitab told Ma'an that Israeli forces entered several homes and handed homeowners the notices, threatening to arrest anyone who refused to grant them permission to use their rooftops.

Residents refused the orders and tore them up on the spot, Inas added.

Jerusalem's Old City is located inside East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories.

It has been under Israeli occupation since 1967, and Israel unilaterally annexed East Jerusalem in 1980. Approximately 200,000 Israeli settlers reside in the area in contravention of international law.
