Notice number 30556

Affected citizen Nael Shraim told LRC :

“In 2020 , I started a vehicle repairing workshop , which cost 80 thousands shekels, noting that I support a family of five , and this is the only source of income for my family , today the workshop was notified.”

Noting that An-NabiElyas like many Palestinian communities, is heavily targeted by the occupation’s arbitrary measurements   that restrict construction. The Occupation prohibits expanding the built up area of the villages , and when a Palestinian builds outside the built up area they become exposed to demolitions, noting that in late 2020 , 39 structures were notified in An-NabiElyas.
