Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Jerusalem Municipality officers and Israeli troops raided a plot of Palestinian land in Wadi Hilweh yesterday morning, 16 November.

Troops removed the iron gate to the land, which belongs to the Al-Helaisi family of Wadi Hilweh. Several olive trees were destroyed by troops, the Municipality later claiming that they had been planted there “without permission”. Troops then confiscated the iron gate and remains of the trees.
The raid is the most recent in what has been a slew conducted on Palestinian properties throughout Silwan.
