International Middle East Media Center: Israeli West Jerusalem municipality destroyed a mobile caravan used as a storage belonging to a Palestinian in the neighborhood of al-Tur, East Jerusalem, under the pretext that it was put there without authorization, according to the owner.


According to a WAFA report, Ali Jubeh, 42, said that municipality workers broke open the door to his caravan, which he placed on his land to store furniture and clothes, removed what was inside in his absence, and proceeded to destroy it.
He said the municipality had previously demolished his home in addition to a mobile home he later used to shelter him and his family.
In Masafer Yatta, to the south of Hebron, the Israeli Nature Reserves Authority and Ministry of Agriculture joined hands, on Monday, to level hundreds of dunams of farmland in the region, according to a local activist. (1 dunam = nearly 1/4 acre.)
Rateb Jabour, from the anti-settlements committee, said that Israeli forces leveled the land, chasing away Palestinian farmers and shepherds.
Also on Monday, Israeli forces confiscated over 400 chickens from a poultry farm in Yabad, southwest of Jenin, according to security sources.
They said that Israeli forces raided the farm, owned by Ragheb Mahajna and located close to Mabo Dotan settlement, confiscating the chickens under the pretext the farm was located in Area C, which is under full Israeli military control.
