JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Several crew members from the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem, the Israeli Ministry of Finance and the Nature Authority along with Israeli forces stormed and razed the eastern part of the Issawiya neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem.

Muhammad Abu al-Hummus, member of a local follow-up committee, said that Israeli bulldozers razed and damaged roads leading to Palestinian-owned agricultural lands and to some commercial establishments, which financially support residents of Issawiya.

Abu al-Hummus pointed out that the Ministry of Finance was in charge of the raze carried out in Issawiya by Israeli bulldozers.

He added that Israeli forces along with bulldozers carried out extensive demolitions in the area periodically. He stressed that the razing and leveling of Palestinian lands aims to gain control of the area to establish an illegal Israeli settlement project under the title of "national parks."
