Israel Demolishes East Jerusalem Buildings

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces demolished several residential and commercial buildings in East Jerusalem on Wednesday, locals said.

Israeli bulldozers, accompanied by military forces, arrived in the neighborhood of At-Tur and demolished a building under construction containing three apartments, owner of the property Khamini Hamdan told Ma'an.

Three shops connected to the building were also destroyed, he added.

The buildings were destroyed under the pretext that they lacked construction permits, although Hamdan said he has been trying to obtain building permission for over 6 months.

Kayed Jaradat, a joint owner of the property, said he had obtained a court-order to suspend demolition orders on the building until May, saying that the construction cost of the property was over 600,000 shekels ($166,000).

1. Sounds like Israel is really looking for peace

Lmao these stories are just laughable. They couldn't run to court and straighten this out? They had to show up with soldiers and bulldozers?

I've said it in other posts. You can fast forward ten years, change locations and you will be able to read the same story.

The self righteous, sanctimonious behavior of both sides will doom the peace forever...a pox on both their houses.
