Reports from Jerusalem confirm that since Tuesday morning the Israeli Occupation Municipality has destroyed a number of houses in the Beit Hanina, Jabal El Makbar, and Isawiya districts of the city.

The sources added that the Occupation forces destroyed three houses in Isawiya: The first of them is owned by Mahmoud Isawi and was under construction; the second – a two-storey building – owned by an elderly female, Sabah Abu Ramila, also under construction and the third owned by Khalil Dari.

Elsewhere in the town of Beit Hanina, the Occupation forces destroyed the home of Rashed Al Rashq, leaving homeless his six-member family.

In the area of Jabal Al Makbar, Israel razed three residential rooms owned by In’am Al Tawil, leaving nine persons – including three children – homeless. And for the second time, Israel demolished a home owned by Musa Mashahra, leaving his six-member family homeless.

Local Palestinians warned that the demolitions carried out on Tuesday may constitute the start of wider demolition operations in several neighbourhoods in Jerusalem, especially those located near the Old City. They called upon regional and international organizations to act to stop the Occupation’s policies and demolitions.
