PressTV – Israel destroys Palestinian shops

Mon Dec 20, 2010 3:25PM

The Israeli military has demolished a series of unfinished Palestinian shops in the occupied West Bank in line with its policies to destroy Palestinian properties.

The shops, which were located in the vicinity of Kiryat Arbaa, were razed on Monday, AFP reported.

Israel claimed that the shops destroyed had been built without a permit.

Last week, Israel destroyed two more Palestinian homes in the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

A bulldozer ruined a single-story building in the southern Sur Bahir neighborhood. Another Palestinian home was demolished in Ras al-Amud near the Mount of Olives.

Palestinians say that their efforts to construct a free and independent Palestinian state will prove fruitless as long as Israel continues to demolish Palestinian homes and shops.

Israel occupied the West Bank, including East al-Quds, which Palestinians deem the capital of their homeland, during the 1967 Six-Day War.
