Jerusalemites perform Friday prayers at the ruins of demolished homes
Dozens of Palestinians performed Friday prayers at the ruins of the demolished houses in Qalandia to the north of Occupied Jerusalem. Locals said that the event came to confirm their adherence to their lands and their determination to rebuild their demolished houses in defiance to Israel’s displacement policy.
The residents also declared their intention to perform Eid al-Edha prayers in the same place. Last July, Israeli municipal crews demolished 11 buildings, which include 30 apartments, in Qalandia under the pretext of being built without permit.
