Video: House demolition in Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives

Video footage by Ken, Jerusalem Team

Israel demolishes a three-story Palestinian home in the Mount of Olives, East Jerusalem, 4 December 2012. When an EAPPI volunteer asked a police officer what was going on, he replied “Oh, just the usual.” Israeli authorities say such demolitions are carried out because of illegal building, but international human rights NGOs say Palestinians are rarely granted permits to build homes in East Jerusalem.
