Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA

RAMALLAH, February 16, 2012 (WAFA) – The German Minister of Economy and Development Cooperation, Dirk Niebel, condemned the demolition of a German-funded center in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, Thursday said a press release by the German representative office in Ramallah.

“I was shocked by the sudden demolition of the German-funded youth center which I just visited two weeks ago…the photographs I received from the demolition site are very disturbing,” said Niebel.

He added that such measures will not help with the peace process in the Middle East, rather it breaks the trust built with a lot of efforts, scarring the new generations.
