Manshiyet Nasser’s municipal council carried out demolition orders for 30 homes in the area, which is situated under a large boulder that some fear could fall down due to erosion.
Residents initially attempted to stop the demolitions, with some tying their children to condemned buildings in hopes of preventing bulldozers from bringing them down. Government officials, however, ultimately managed to pressure them into moving.
The council said it served 150 local families with evacuation orders and provided them with alternative housing units in El-Salam City.
