The demolished Auto Shop employed more than eleven Palestinians, Amira added.
In Addition, the soldiers invaded another area in the village, and demolished a chicken slaughter house, owned by Issa Abdul-Ghani Abu Srour, without any prior notice or warning.
Amira added that the demolished building was located near a military roadblock, and employed 72 Palestinians.
