Israeli police bans lecture on home demolitions in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, Israeli police banned today a lecture which was supposed to discuss the Israeli policy of home demolitions in the old city of Jerusalem, witnesses said.

Israeli police officers raided Burj Al-Laqlaq building in the old city and handed representatives of the Palestinian Bar Association, the organizer of the event, a notice signed by Israeli Minister of Interior Gilad Erdan ordering the event to be canceled, under the pretext that it was sponsored and financed by the Palestinian Authority.

Last month, Israeli occupation authorities demolished 100 residential apartments in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher, under the pretext of their proximity to the Israeli segregation barrier.
