İ just heard about it a while ago

And from i heard that some of the heavy machineries having difficulties reaching the eara.

People there built their houses in the mountain ´geologically its not exactly a mountain,but i dont know what its called´ and using the water harm the stability of the rocks which form the mountain ´what ever its name´.

Actually Ros,i have never been there,but i could see the area from a far while using a high way there,we pass near it.

İts very crowded and not organized,many houses very close to each other,and also on the mountain.

Still people refused to leave there when they built new houses for them.

they have their own business there,and they refused to leave.

This is part of Salah El Din Citadel,which have been built also on El Mokatam hill,to protect Cairo in the past,at the time when Cairo´s borders were only inside the citadel walls.

news article was inaccurate, by saying this  happened in Cairo, when in fact it did not happen in Cairo. Thanks for picture, Canli.

It´s not a  mountain, cause its stoo short to bre a mountain, So its s cientifically a hill, but its a rocky hard hill, so i guess its kind of a mountany hill, I saw it while we were doing some sightseeing, Its by the Mehmet Ali Pasha mosque and the Citadell, It looks kinda big, but For sure its not a mountain, and a lot of ppl live on it it (i think) and it ahs stores and  everything.

 But it actually happened in Cairo Ros,the hill,on Cairo´s borders as i believe,and that area is also in Cairo,at the borders too.

Actually,there are also some Luxury places on the top of that hill,and 5 starts hotle too
