Israeli soldiers invaded, Monday, Anata Palestinian town, northeast of occupied East Jerusalem, before demolishing structures and walls, only a week after issuing the destruction orders.

Taha Refa’ey, the Mayor of Anata, stated that the soldiers demolished the structures in the eastern part of the town, close to the Industrial Zone in the an-Najma neighborhood.

He added that the soldiers demolished four commercial structures, and several walls surrounding Palestinian lands, owned by Mohammad Ahmad Ibrahim, Mohammad Hilwa, and Mohammad al-Bayya’.

The mayor stated that the military issued the demolition orders only a week ago, under the pretext of being built without a permit, and carried the destruction out before the residents could file appeals and have their day in court.
