May 20, 2013

The taxes department and social security employees along with the Israeli Intelligence raided Al-Wad Street in the Old City of Jerusalem on Sunday. Residents of Al-Wad Street said that forces from the Israeli Intelligence accompanied with the police raided their homes in the early morning hours, and went up on the roofs to take pictures of the alleys of the Old City, without mentioning the reasons behind their actions. The Municipality crews also raided the business shops at around 10 a.m. along with the social security employees who raided some of the homes under the pretext of “accumulation of debt for the Social Security Organization” and threatened the residents to seize their properties in case they don’t pay the debt.
