JERUSALEM, December 5, 2013 (WAFA) – The residents of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan were surprised Thursday when they saw collapses and wide cracks in their main road of Wadi Hilweh following rainfall blaming it on excavations underneath their homes and streets.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center said 30-meter-long collapse and cracks were seen in the main access road they take daily in Wadi Hilweh neighborhood.

Staff from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem made an inspection visit to Silwan spring to which the residents are denied access and where similar collapses most likely occurred, said the center.

According to the residents, the municipality along with police arrived at the scene and claimed that the collapses and cracks occurred due to a failure in the sewage system although the sewage system had been restored and the main road asphalted a year and a half ago.

The residents said that such collapses occur every year after rainfall due to the excavations carried out by both Elad settlement organization and Israel Antiquities Authority underneath their houses and streets in Silwan, noting that under the excavations there is a tunnel that connects Silwan spring with Magharbe Gate and plans are made to connect it with the Western Wall.

They added that many collapses occurred in Silwan, most notably a collapse of a classroom floor in a UN-run school.
