Last week, in the Beit Hanina neighborhood, the dust continued to settle on the group of people who remained there for a long while after the house had been completely demolished.

The two-story home had to be demolished before the end of July, as ruled by the municipality, after it was found that it was built on a plot belonging to a Jewish owner. In this particular case, a representative of the Palestinian Authority who was requested to intervene refused to act and the family members preferred to demolish the house themselves rather than pay a contractor to do the job for them.
