Israeli soldiers demolished, Wednesday, a Palestinian home and a barn for horses, in the eastern part of the southern area of the al-‘Isawiya town, in occupied Jerusalem, in addition to destroying water pipelines.
Mohammad Abu al-Hummus, a member of the Follow-Up Committee in al-‘Isawiya, said the soldiers demolished a home, owned by a member of Abu Teir family, consisting of two rooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen, in addition to the barn.
Abu al-Hummus added that the soldiers also destroyed water pipelines and agricultural installations.
He stated that the demolitions in that area are part of Israel’s continued construction of the so-called “National Garden,” which already led to the illegal annexation of vast areas of Palestinian lands and the demolition of Palestinian property.
Wednesday’s demolitions took place in the only remaining area where the Palestinians can build or expand the existing homes and structures.
Abu al-Hummus said the demolitions in al-‘Isawiya area part of a series of Israeli violations against the Palestinians and their properties in the town, and added that these assaults have escalated since last year, and included daily violent home invasions and abductions of the residents, demolitions and demolition orders, in addition to attacking students in their schools, or while heading there or going back home.
Also Wednesday, the soldiers demolished a home in Deir al-Sunna neighborhood, in Jabal al-Mokabber, southeast of occupied East Jerusalem.
On Tuesday, dozens of soldiers invaded the town, and started removing graffiti and photos of Mohammad Obeid, 27, who was killed by the army on June 27, 2019.
