OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Hours after the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) declared its intention to build more than 652 housing units in Pisgat Ze’ev settlement in the eastern part of occupied Jerusalem last week, it approved a plan to build 130 other units in Gilo settlement.

This came in a report on Israel’s settlement activities and its violations in Jerusalem and the West Bank issued by the national bureau for defending lands and resisting settlement.

The report also said that the IOA demolished three Palestinian homes in Jerusalem last week and forced a Palestinian citizen to raze his home by himself.

The report stated that the IOA prevented a group of Palestinian farmers in Beit Ula town in Al-Khalil city from working their lands, confiscated an agricultural vehicle and demolished two residential structures.

The IOA also notified the Palestinian residents of Ma’sarah village in Bethlehem city of its decision to demolish Ibrahim Al-Khalil Mosque and two residential buildings.

During the reported week, a three-year old Palestinian child called Mohamed Al-Masri was wounded after he was run over by an Israeli car near Kiryat Arba settlement east of Al-Khalil.
