The authorities of Salfit are well aware that the house should not have been built where it stands. In fact it violates the village's zoning code, inherited from the British. The explanation is that it was built during the first Intifada, when Salfit residents faced so many problems that they turned a blind eye to this house, rather than create a problem for one of their own.
