The Israeli occupation authorities leveled Palestinian lands northeast of Jerusalem city as part of its underway land grab tactics.
Member of the Follow-Up Committee in al-Issawiya village, Mohamed Abu al-Hums, said the Israeli forces, escorted by three heavily-equipped vehicles, stormed al-Issawiya, northeast of Occupied Jerusalem, and bulldozed Palestinian land tracts owned by the Abu Turk, Mustafa, and Muheissen families.
The targeted land lots cover an area of up to seven dunums.
The Israeli forces further razed a security fence surrounding the lands and uprooted olive trees before they issued a fine against the owner of an agricultural structure.
At the same time, the Israeli forces bulldozed a land belonging to the Palestinian citizen Zakaria Abu Tayeh in Khilet al-Ein, in Jerusalem’s eastern town of al-Tur, moments before they violently beat al-Tayeh and dragged him to an Israeli investigation center.
In August alone, at least 11 Palestinian facilities were reduced to rubble by Israel’s demolition machines across Occupied Jerusalem.
