Israel demolishes buildings, pylons near Bethlehem

Ma’an – 03/04/2012

BETHLEHEM – Israeli forces demolished four ancient buildings and uprooted 52 electricity poles in lands near Bethlehem on Tuesday morning, locals said.

The electricity line that connects the Al-Makhrour neighborhood to nearby Beit Jala was destroyed by bulldozers, local anti-wall committee coordinator Mazin al-Azza told Ma’an.

Locals said the electricity connection had been installed eight years ago, and they never received a demolition order for it from Israeli authorities.

Al-Makhrour, west of Bethlehem, is considered a natural heritage site by the Center for Cultural Heritage Preservation. The hillside neighborhood is slated to be cut off from Beit Jala by Israel’s separation wall, the center says.
