Israeli forces, for the fifth time in a row, have demolished the symbolic popular struggle village ‘Jerusalem Gate’ in Abu Dis, which continues its stand against Israeli policies of demolition and ethnic cleansing by relocating Bedouins in East Jerusalem to the Jordan Valley region.Munther Amira, popular struggle activist and coordinator, said that the demolition was completely provocative and used bigger and stronger machinery than the last four times, in a way to point out that Israel is, in fact, preparing to proceed with the displacements and bulldozing land for the purpose of settlement expansion.

Amira assured that the parties and committees will complete their steadfastness and rebuild the village again, according to the PNN.
