Following the work of some citizens headed by Mr. Tarboush Qassem Al-Qadase to establish a mosque and school for the teaching of the Quran, the citizens were astonished to find that a contractor, Ali Ahmed Al-Hadad, had occupied the lands and begun destroying a nearby house with heavy equipment. The gateways were blocked using armed men. This took place in collusion with the police of the Al-Huban, which arrested the owner of the destroyed home and forced him to accept a settlement.
Citizens in the neighborhood filed a petition in protest.
