Demolished Home Rebuilt in Al-Walajeh

Al-Walajeh – PNN – Palestine News Network – People gathered in Al-Walajeh village near Bethlehem Saturday night to celebrate the rebuilding of a family’s home that was destroyed by the Israeli army seven years ago.

The family served coffee and thanked the crowd of around 60 people for coming. Sami Awad and Marwan Al-Fararja, leaders from local NGO Holy Land Trust who led the project, spoke about the rebuilding process and the journey the family had been on since the destruction of their home.

After Awad presented the key to the owner, Attalah Abu Rizeq, people got to look around the newly-built five-room house with a magnificent view of the valley below.

Construction on the home began in May and was recently completed by volunteers from the British NGO Amos Trust. read more
