JERUSALEM, Tuesday, June 09, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today demolished five structures built of tin in al-Sawahreh village, to the southeast of occupied Jerusalem, and seized their contents, according to Younes Jafar, member of al-Sawahreh village council.
He told WAFA that Israeli soldiers raided the area and demolished the five structures under the pretext that they were built without a permit.
He said that the owners of the structures did not receive any demolition notices, adding that their dwellers were evicted by force.
Jafar said Israel wants to empty the area of its Palestinian residents in order to build new roads for the area’s illegal Jewish settlements as part of it intended annexation plan.
The army yesterday dismantled and seized a greenhouse in the same area and gave house demolition orders to four other Palestinian families, all under the pretext of construction without permit.
