Israel razes Palestinian shops in E. Jerusalem

Israeli army bulldozers on Wednesday demolished a Palestinian building and 20 commercial shops in occupied East Jerusalem on claims that they had been built without permission.

"Four bulldozers backed by 300 Israeli troops forced their way into the Shuafat refugee camp early this morning and began demolishing 20 shops and one building," Mohamed Masalmeh, head of the refugee camp's popular committee, told The Anadolu Agency.

He said that Israeli forces had prevented anyone from approaching the area since early morning.

Owned by the al-Dijani family, the demolished properties had sat on 800 square meters of land.

"The targeted shops had included coffee shops, car repair shops, chicken butcheries, vegetable stores, supermarkets and many more," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

East Jerusalem was never supposed to be a part of Israel and most of the buildings were built before Israel had any authority to issue permits. But Israel declares these buildings illegal and destroys them, claiming it is all the letter of the law. But remember, everything the Nazis did was the letter of law as well. Did that make it right?
