The Israeli regime’s bulldozers have demolished several houses belonging to Palestinians in East al-Quds (Jerusalem), locals say.

On Monday, Sami Abu Ghaliya, the secretary-general of the Bedouin Jahalin tribes, said that Israeli authorities razed two small residential and four agricultural structures belonging to his family in al-Eizariya.    

Abu Ghaliya further noted that the Israeli authorities made fourteen other Palestinian people homeless by the destruction.

Jahalin tribesmen were displaced by Israel from their villages in the Negev Desert in 1948. They currently live east and northeast of al-Quds, near the illegal Maale Adumim settlement.

Elsewhere in E1 area, the Israeli bulldozers demolished a number of Palestinian structures.

The demolition came without a warning, with a local official saying that the move was part of Tel Aviv’s plan to empty the area to extend the Maale Adumim settlement that lies in the E1 area.

E1 is a sensitive zone between East al-Quds and the West Bank and its expansion has been on Israel’s agenda since the 1990s.

More than half a million Israelis live in illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.

The Israeli settlements are considered illegal by much of the international community. However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the settlement construction is part of Tel Aviv’s policy and will not stop

  1. Yeah, and here’s a media psy-op: Israelis who bulldoze peoples’ homes, kick them out, and build their own homes there – also called STEALING LAND – are in the media called: “SETTLERS” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is one of the all-time biggest Zio-media psy-ops: they call them SETTLERS and SETTLEMENTS.

    Well, I’m going to bulldoze my neighbor’s home, kick them out, and build my own home on their property…which is now MY property.

    WHY? Because I’m a: “SETTLER” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I’m making a: “SETTLEMENT” !!!!!!!!!!

    wtf man?
