Israeli Bulldozers Demolish Structures in East Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, August 26, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers Monday demolished several structures, including animal barns, and razed agricultural land in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya, according to a local activist.

Mohammed Abu Hummus, member of the monitoring committee in Issawiya, told WAFA that bulldozers protected by a large police force along with staff from the Israeli antiquities authority demolished three sheds, two of which were used as animal barns, under the pretext that they were “harmful and destructive to nature”.

Bulldozers also demolished a car garage and a chicken farm under the pretext of being built without a permit.

The bulldozer razed two dunums of agricultural land and uprooted olive trees in the same neighborhood.
