Tutanji Home Demolition

May 17, 2016 IMEU

The Tutanji family woke up in the middle of the night to find their home being demolished. They weren't given any time to collect their clothes or belongings. Israel wants to turn the land that their home is on into a state park, despite the fact that the Tutanjis and other Palestinian families and their ancestors have owned the land for 270 years. Israel denies 93% of requests from Palestinians for building permits in East Jerusalem, forcing them to build illegally. Israel then demolishes homes for being built without a permit when the state wants to confiscate the land.
