Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA 
 JERUSALEM, March 27, 2012 (WAFA) – The West Jerusalem Israeli municipality handed six Palestinian families living in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan home demolition notices under the pretext of building without a permit, the Wadi Hilweh Information Center said Tuesday in a statement.

It said municipality staff accompanied by a large police force handed the notices to the residents.

One of the homes that received a demolition order was demolished seven years ago. It was later rebuilt. The owner has already received three demolition orders over the last five months.
