Israeli forces continued the demolishing of houses in East Jerusalem’s Sur Baher neighbourhood on Monday. Footage shows a residential building being blown up a few hours after the demolition of dozens of houses in the same area.
The demolitions are the culmination of a seven-year dispute between Israel and the residents of the area. The lawsuit claims the buildings were constructed without proper... Еще legal permission and are located too close to the border wall and pose a security risk.
Hundreds of armed Israeli police officers arrived at the location early on Monday, and several Palestinian families were evicted. Bulldozers and diggers were then moved in to reportedly destroy 16 buildings containing 100 apartments. Many Palestinians are reportedly homeless after the demolition.
