Palestinians, Israeli Forces Clash in Abu Dis

Young Palestinian men and Israeli forces clashed in East Jerusalem’s Abu Dis neighborhood on Monday as Israeli Civil Administration officers delivered a demolition order for a building in the village.

Dozens of students from the Al-Quds University campus in Abu Dis were among those showered with tear gas canisters fired by the Israeli forces, a local Fatah official Anwar Badr said.

A female student fell while running from the tear gas and sustained facial injuries, Badr told Ma’an.

Israeli forces also fired tear gas at a mosque by the campus, affecting worshipers and passersby.

The Israeli officers were accompanying Civil Administration officials who posted a demolition order to a building being constructed by Ibrahim Abu Sneina, witnesses said.

The Israeli forces closed all streets in the area, preventing students from accessing campus for final exams.

Earlier, Israeli forces issued a demolition order to a property in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina.

Jerusalem municipality staff left the order on a 300-meter-square property which is home to 20 people.

According to the UN, 33 percent of all Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem lack Israeli-issued building permits, potentially placing at least 93,100 residents at risk of displacement.
