Israeli bulldozers demolish 2 Palestinian structures east of Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers on Monday destroyed two structures in al-Eizariya village east of Jerusalem, the owner of the buildings said.

Sami Abu Ghaliya told Ma'an that bulldozers accompanied by Israeli forces entered al-Eizariya and demolished his produce market and his car wash, located at the entrance of the village across from the Maale Adumim settlement.

The car wash was a 150-square-meter structure, and the produce market was 70 square meters large, Abu Ghaliya said.

He estimated that the buildings had cost him 80,000 shekels to construct, adding that Monday marked the fourth demolition of structures he owned within the last five months.

Israeli forces rarely grant Palestinians permits to build in the occupied West Bank, and regularly demolish homes and other structures in Areas B and C.
