JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday demolished two Palestinian structures in the East Jerusalem towns of Hizma and Silwan, locals said.

Israeli forces escorted bulldozers to the town of Hizma, where they destroyed a car wash owned by Faris Salah Addin. Israeli forces also confiscated refrigerators from a store in the town, as well as sealing a number of commercial properties.

In Silwan, Israeli forces demolished a number of barns used to keep horses in the al-Ein al-Fuqa area.

In May, Israeli bulldozers demolished three Palestinian structures in East Jerusalem, including two shops and a workshop.

Israel destroyed more than 500 Palestinian properties in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 2013, displacing over 850 people, according to UN figures.
