OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Citizens in Issawiya in central occupied Jerusalem clashed with Israeli occupation police and municipal teams after they razed a house and a printing press for the usual pretext of lack of permit on Tuesday.

Local sources said that big number of policemen and border police stormed the town and encircled a number of houses and were confronted by the inhabitants, adding that the policemen fired bullets and gas bombs at the protesters.

They said that razing the house of Attiya Emtair was made without prior notice, adding that the printing press, owned by Mohammed Rubin, was knocked down for not obtaining permit.

The Makdesi institution for social development in occupied Jerusalem published a report on Tuesday saying that the Israeli occupation authority had destroyed 1485 houses in the holy city since its occupation in 1967 and issued 1300 demolition orders during the past two years.
