Israeli bulldozers razed three unfinished buildings in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya on Tuesday, raising Palestinian charges that the Jerusalem municipality is resuming house demolitions after a pause to encourage peace talks.

A municipality official said that the destroyed structures were not homes and that they were illegally built and uninhabited.

Neighborhood residents said on Tuesday that the second structure was also a house while the third was a warehouse.
