JERUSALEM, January 19 (JMCC) - Israeli bulldozers destroyed a water network and bulldozed several dunams of land in the East Jerusalem
neighborhood of Isawiya
Dozens of trees were uprooted in the demolition operation.
It appeared that the bulldozers were preparing the land for expanding the Israeli settlement
of Gush Adumim, in the eastern part of occupied Jerusalem.
Israeli forces have stepped up demolitions in East Jerusalem since the start of the year, demolishing five Palestinian-owned structures in various parts of the city's occupied eastern half.
