West Jerusalem Municipality Notifies to Demolish Playground in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, September 8, 2013 (WAFA) – The West Jerusalem Municipality Sunday issued an order of demolishing to the Wadi Hilweh playground in the town of Silwan, south of Jerusalem, in order to turn it into a parking lot for settlers’ use.

Mahmoud Qara’in of the Wadi Hilweh Information Center told WAFA that the Municipality has notified the residents with the demolishing of the 850-square-meter playground as well as a 20-square-meter room used for storage.

He pointed out that in 2011, the Israeli authorities demolished the same room and razed sections of the playground.

Qarain said that Wadi Hilweh residents filed a lawsuit over the playground case, to which Israeli authorities responded with a decision to take over the playground.
