Israeli court orders partial demolition of Jerusalem house

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – An Israeli court in Jerusalem has decided to demolish parts of the house of a Palestinian Jerusalem resident in al-Qarmi neighborhood of Jerusalem's Old City under the guise that the third floor of the house was expanded without obtaining the needed license and without architectural plan.

Ayid Castero told Ma’an that the court ordered the demolition of the roof of three rooms, a balcony and a staircase on the third floor of his three-story house. The demolition must be completed before the end of 2013 and Castero must pay a fine of 90,000 NIS as reimbursement to five Jewish organizations.

Castero, who lives with his wife and nine children in the house, confirmed that he had an architectural plan for his home. He added that his lawyer would appeal the decision and highlighted that demolition would cause damages to the rest of the building and to ancient buildings which abut the structure.
