Demolitions carried out by the Israeli occupation forces

The Palestinian authority condemned the demolitions carried out by the Israeli occupation forces in Wad al-Hems area in Sur Baher, southeast of occupied Jerusalem.

The Palestinian authority made the Israeli Government fully responsible for this dangerous escalation against the defenseless Palestinian people and considered it part of the plan of implementation of the so-called “Deal of the Century” aimed at the closing out of the Palestinian issue.

The President Mahmud Abbas called on the international community to intervene immediately to stop this aggression against people, land and holy sites.

The Palestinian authority hailed the steadfastness of the Palestinian people in all its places of residence, especially in eternal capital, Jerusalem, and they cling to the oppression and tyranny of Israel.

The Palestinian authority said that the independent state of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital, will sooner or later be the only way of peace, and that others should shoulder their responsibilities.
