On Wednesday, the occupation forces demolished two barracks in the village of Sur Baher, south of Jerusalem.

In the morning, the occupation forces, accompanied by vehicles, stormed the village and demolished two barracks in the village of Sur Baher.

Mahmoud Basit - the owner of one of the barracks - explained that he was surprised by the demolition of his barracks and the bulldozing of the fence surrounding his land, without warning, under the pretext of building without a permit.

Basitadded that he placed the barracksin his land about 5 months ago, and was preparing it from the inside.

He pointed out that the occupation bulldozers demolished yesterday a commercial facility in Al-Bustan neighborhood in Silwan, which was rented from the Al-Rajabi family.

He explained that, six months ago, he rented and fully equipped the shop, then opened the "Al-Khalil Butchery”, and the municipality’s crews and bulldozers stormed the shop, emptied its contents and proceeded with the demolition process.
