Israeli forces demolish centre for disabled children in east Jerusalem

Jerusalem – Ma’an

The Israeli forces demolished a centre for disabled children in east Jerusalem early on Tuesday morning.

The Israeli authorities said that the centre, which houses an association for disabled children in the Wadi Joz neighbourhood of Jerusalem, had no license.

Our Jerusalem correspondent reported that the Israeli military forced the disabled children to evacuate the building and then began demolishing it.

The 70 m² building, which is owned by Palestinian Jerusalemite Hani Tatah, houses more than 20 disabled children.

This latest demolition brings the number of buildings demolished by Israel since the start of the current year to 48; the Israeli authorities claim the buildings have no license.
