Israel demolishes house, 3 illegally-constructed stores in east Jerusalem

Three illegally-built shops and a house under construction were demolished by Israeli government bulldozers in east Jerusalem’s Silwan neighborhood, adjacent to the Old City, on Tuesday morning.

In a statement, the Wadi Hilweh Information Center said a coterie of IDF soldiers, accompanied by a bulldozer, arrived during the early morning hours, cordoned off the area, and proceeded to raze the structures.

“Israeli bulldozers arrived at 4.00 a.m., backed by dozens of Israeli troops, and leveled the three shops to the ground under the pretext they had been built illegally,” the center said.
