Members of the Abu Amrah family in Gaza City demonstrated Tuesday in front of offices of the Palestinian Legislative Council protesting a decision by the Hamas-run government to demolish 75 houses belonging to the family in the al-Rimal neighborhood.
The government says it decided to demolish the houses because they were illegally built on public lands.
My Two Cents
Calling all human rights activists! Palestinian homes are being demolished!
Oh wait, never mind – the demolitions are going to be carried out by Hamas in Gaza. No need to issue any condemnations here.
Update: This post explains why Hamas chose to destroy these homes in particular – apparently, the Abu Amrah clan is affiliated with Fatah. Enough said.
