Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) —

The Wadi Hilweh Children Cultural Center, a stable and the local playground were demolished by Jerusalem Municipality and National Parks Authority officers on the morning of 13 February. Officers claimed that the land in question was property of the Parks Authority.

The Municipality had in the past attempted to confiscate the land for conversion to parking facilities for the City of David tourism settlement, but faced significant local resistance from Wadi Hilweh residents. The case currently remains in court.
