MEE/Jérusalem : les autorités israéliennes démolissent un centre de santé à Jabal al-Mukaber

La démolition du centre, qui dessert 20 000 personnes, a eu lieu malgré un recours déposé contre lui.

Israeli authorities on Tuesday demolished a healthcare centre in occupied East Jerusalem without prior notice, according to Palestinian reports.

Bulldozers arrived early in the morning as security forces cordoned off the area around the Abdallah al-Shaikh health centre, which was treating people at the time, in the neighbourhood of Jabal al-Mukaber before the demoliton was carried out.

Ghassan Jalajel, director of the centre, told Palestinian news agency Wafa the building was torn down without notice despite an appeal previously submitted to Israeli courts against the demolition order.

He said half of the centre, which serves 20,000 people living in the neighbourhood, was demolished. LINK TO ARTICLE
