Israeli occupation forces (IOF) demolished Monday, March 6, Palestinian facilities and homes in the Al-Issawiya and Wadi Al-Jouz neighborhoods in occupied Jerusalem.

Israeli forces, accompanied by bulldozers, stormed the Al-Issawiya town and demolished Palestinian-owned residential and agricultural facilities.

The Israeli bulldozers razed agricultural lands belonging to Mohammed Muhaisen, Majdi Hassan Ali, and Mohammed Musa Derbas.

This coincided with the Israeli forces storming into the Wadi al-Joz neighborhood in Jerusalem, to demolish houses for the Palestinian Totah family.

They demolished two houses, one of which contained two apartments for Yahya Totah and Hany Totah, while the second house belonged to Arafat Totah.

The Israeli occupation issued a decision to demolish the two houses under the pretext of building them without a permit though they were built more than 20 years ago.

In February, IOF demolished and bulldozed about 41 facilities in Jerusalem. In addition, they excavated and razed three Palestinian agricultural lands.
