OCCUPIED JERUSALEM - The State Comptroller of Israel has called for the demolition of tens of Palestinian homes in Silwan, the suburb adjacent to the Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, in an official report published on Wednesday.

The report claimed that the houses were built without permits and in violation of the structural map of the suburb.

It said that aerial photographing and information provided by the municipality indicated that Palestinians in Silwan, east of Jerusalem, had built 110 houses over the past 31 years in violation of the structural map of the suburb that was endorsed in the mid seventies of the past century.

The State Comptroller recommended resorting to court to obtain demolition verdicts against those homes. The Israeli-controlled municipality is systematically razing tens of Palestinian homes in occupied Jerusalem.
