Israeli forces demolished on Tuesday a children’s park near occupied Jerusalem amid a mass escalation in demolitions across the occupied city this year.
Spokesperson for Kafer Aqeb municipality, Raed Hamdan, said that the demolition process aims at enlarging Qalandia military checkpoint that links between the occupied city and Ramallah.
Erecting military checkpoints is one of the main tools Israel employs to enforce its regime of occupation. Israel imposes restrictions on the movement of Palestinians within the West Bank, and travel between it and the Gaza Strip, into East Jerusalem, Israel, and abroad.
