The occupation bulldozers demolished on Tuesday three establishments in the villages of Esawyeh and Silwan under the pretext of building without a permit.

Large Israeli forces including municipality employees, police and Special Forces raided the village of Esawyeh in the early morning hours and started demolishing an under-construction building owned by Mustafa family. The family started building in 2009 and stopped building after receiving an order to stop building. The family then attempted to license the building which consists of two floors (4 residential apartments) with a total area of 240 square meters.

The bulldozers also demolished a room and swept wide area of land owned by Amin Mohammad Khlaf and also demolished the walls and fences around the land.

In Silwan, the occupation bulldozers demolished a 50-square meters warehouse owned by Aref Shahin which was built three years ago.
