Abu Hamdiyya pointed that he has been living in the ground floor for more than 40 years; whereas the other three stories are still under construction. 3 other rooms built by Abu Hamdiyya were also included in the order which stated that the amendments made to the house and the three rooms lack the needed permits.
A hearing session have been set on July 29, 2010, in Beit El Military Court to decide whether they should demolish the whole building or return it to its status quo. Abu Hamdiyya is trying to gather all the needed deeds before the session even though he is sure that he will not receive the needed permit.
