UN condemns Israel’s demolition of Palestinian buildings in East Jerusalem

The United Nations (UN) on Monday condemned Israel's demolition of some of Palestinians buildings in Sur Bahir, in East Jerusalem, calling the move a violation of international law.

UN officials said the UN's humanitarian aid partners are now ready to help the Palestinian people who are forced to leave their homes, but no support can compensate the loss.

According to sources, hundreds of Israeli police officers arrived at the Sur Bahir area in the early morning, forcing families to leave their homes and demolish buildings near the Israeli security barrier that separates the West Bank. Israel's Supreme Court declared that these buildings were built too close to the security barrier and violated the construction ban.
