Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem

Israel demolished today two Palestinian buildings that were still in the construction phase in the town of Eizariya, east of occupied Jerusalem but on land considered within the Jerusalem municipal lines, under the pretext they were built without a permit and too close to the separation wall, according to the owner.

Samer Abu Zayyad, owner of the two buildings, told that Israeli soldiers gave protection to Israeli Jerusalem municipality staff as they used heavy machinery to demolish the two buildings – one 540 square meters and the other 430 square meters in area – estimating his losses at more than $1 million, not including the price of the land they were built on.

He said that he had received a demolition order in May from the Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem.
