More East Jerusalem homes slated for demolition

Three families in East Jerusalem are formally notified that their homes are slated for demolition.

One is the house of Mohammed Jaabis, 23, from Jabel Mukaber, who rammed an earthmover into a bus on August 4, killing an Israeli and wounding five. He was shot dead by police at the scene.

Another is that of Mu’taz Hijazi, 32, from Abu Tor who on October 29 tried to gun down a right-wing Jewish activist, critically wounding him. Hijazi was shot dead the following morning during a police raid.

The third is the home of Ibrahim al-Akary, 38, from the Shuafat refugee camp, who on November 5 rammed his car into pedestrians, killing a teenager and a policeman and wounding nine, before also being shot dead at the scene.

For those whose houses have been condemned, it becomes a waiting game until they receive the date.

After that, they have 48 hours to appeal against the order to the Supreme Court.
