Occupied Jerusalem, MINA – Israeli municipal authorities on Sunday demolished a Palestinian wedding venue in the industrial zone of Baqa al-Gharbiyye city in the Haifa District (the 1948 occupied lands) at the pretext of unlicensed construction.
Owner of the venue Mohamed Khashan said that he had tried to go to Israeli courts to prevent the demolition, but he was surprised to see Israeli police troops cordoning off the area at dawn yesterday before a bulldozer embarked on knocking down the place, PIC reported.
Khashan told Quds Press that the bulldozer razed the place over wedding equipment and furniture, without allowing him to move anything away.
He pointed out that dozens of weddings, ceremonies and celebrations had been held in his venue, which was built several years ago.(R/R04/RS5)
