Gaza,(Alresalah.ps)-- The Palestinian young man Abdullah Abu Affas on Wednesday was forced to demolish his own house in Wadi al-Ne'am village in the Negev to avoid paying a heavy fine to the Israeli authorities.
The Israeli authorities on Tuesday ordered Abu Affas to demolish his house, only a week after his wedding, for allegedly being unlicensed. Otherwise, the Israeli authorities would carry out the demolition and force him to pay the costs.
Wadi al-Ne'am is one of the unrecognized Arab villages in the Negev, and it has a population of about 1,500.
Wadi al-Ne'am residents, over the past 60 years, have lived without recognition or any possibility of development and expansion. The village lacks basic services like water, electricity, and infrastructure, and the residents are constantly threatened with forcible transfer.
