JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces destroyed storage containers and confiscated commercial goods belonging to Palestinians in East Jerusalem on Thursday, locals said.

Israeli forces and bulldozers entered al-Eizariya and confiscated stone displayed for sale in the al-Mashtal neighborhood near Maale Adumin settlement.

They handed residents demolition orders and requested store owners present licenses.

The store owners told Ma'an they had licenses from al-Eizariya town council but their requests for permits from Israeli liaison officials were rejected.
