On 19 August 2013, the Ministry of the Interior demolished all six residential structures of Tal eAdasa, a Bedouin community that numbers dozens, including many children. The community, part of the al-Kaiabneh tribe, lives within Jerusalemis municipal boundaries, close to the Palestinian town of Beit Hanina. In addition to the demolition, inspectors informed community members they have ten days to leave the area before being forcefully removed and ordered them to clear the demolition debris themselves.
