The Israeli occupation authorities notified on August 19, 2015 the residence of Al-Hashlamoun of confiscation and demolition. At time, the family sought help from Center for the Defence of the Individual to object to the order. The Israeli occupation authorities rejected on October 17, 2015 the plea submitted by the aforementioned association and the demolition order was approved effective.

It is reported that the 136m2 demolished house is located in the fourth floor of a five story building. The building accommodates 10 apartments, of which 8 are inhabited by 45 people including the four member family of Al-Hashlamoun .




Al-Hashlamoun was accused of carrying out a killing attack that left one female colonists dead and two injured on November 10, 2014. It should be marked that Al-Hashlamoun is still detained by the Israeli occupation authorities.
