Israeli forces demolish slaughterhouse, balcony, well near Bethlehem

April 5, 2016 3:05 P.M. (Updated: April 5, 2016 7:03 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces demolished a poultry slaughterhouse, a balcony, and a water well in the town of Beit Sahour in the southern occupied West Bank on Tuesday morning.

Beit Sahour Mayor Hani al-Hayik told Ma’an that an excavator escorted by Israeli military vehicles demolished the sole poultry slaughterhouse in the town east of Bethlehem. The 200-square meter property belonged to the Beit Sahour municipality and had been built in 2011, he said.

Al-Hayik added that Israeli forces demolished the balcony of a private home, claiming that while the house was located in Area B, the balcony was in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control.

The Israeli forces also damaged a water well in Beit Sahour.

Al-Hayik said Israeli forces also confiscated a shipping container used as a mobile house by its owner, Issa Kheir.

The mayor estimated Tuesday’s demolitions to have caused around $130,000 in damages.

The Israeli Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
