Israeli court refuses Salhia family request to rebuild their demolished home in Sheikh Jarrah

JERUSALEM (The Inside Palestine)– The Israeli District Court in Jerusalem rejected a petition by the Salhia family to rebuild their home demolished last week by the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem in a bid to take over the land the house was built on.

The Salhia family lawyer, Walid Abu Tayeh, said the court said it rejected the demolition on the ground that the demolition has been a fact.

He said after the rejection by the District Court that he is going to petition the Israeli High Court on the ground that the demolition was illegal since the Salhia family never received a demolition order for the house and therefore the family can legally return to its land and rebuild its home.
