The Jerusalem Municipality carried out the demolition of five illegally-built homes in separate neighborhoods of east Jerusalem on Tuesday morning, during which three Border Guard officers were lightly injured by rocks thrown at them from local residents. According to a Jerusalem Border Police spokesman, one of the demolitions was carried out in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jebl Mukaber and the other near Anata, on the outskirts of the Shuafat refugee camp. Additional demolitions occurred in Sur Baher, Silwan, and Um Leisun. The spokesman added that while local residents pelted officers and the demolition crew they were escorting with rocks, the officers refrained from using force against them and the demolition crew continued with its work.
