Islamic Christian commission slams Israel’s destruction policy in Silwan

[ PIC 29/01/2013 – 10:30 AM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Islamic Christian commission for patronizing Jerusalem and holy sites said that Israel’s demolition of homes and property in Silwan district is detrimental to any direct or indirect peace talks and an obstacle to the establishment of the Palestinian state.

In a press release, secretary-general of the commission Hanna Issa said that Israel seeks through its arbitrary measures against the Palestinian natives in the holy city to shrink their number and provide areas of land and property for the housing of Jews.

Issa stressed that Israel pursues a mass punishment policy against the Palestinians in Jerusalem and violates the fourth Geneva convention regarding the protection of civilians under occupation.

“Since its occupation of the Palestinian lands in 1967, Israel has embarked on practicing the policy of demolishing homes and establishments under many pretexts, especially for security excuses or because the owners have no construction licenses,” Issa underlined.

He appealed to the international community and the UN security council to take action to stop Israel’s destruction policy against the Palestinian homes and the Islamic and Christian historical buildings in the holy city.
