BETHLEHEM, August 2, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday razed an agricultural road and demolished facilities of a restaurant and a house, west of Beit Jala, in the Bethlehem governorate, said local sources.

The soldiers raided al-Makhrur area and demolished a restaurant’s kitchen and a house‘s columns-- both were destroyed before and re-built-- that belongs to Palestinians.
It is not the first time the occupation army raid this area; it was raided last May, when the soldiers destroyed electricity poles, closed agricultural roads and demolished a restaurant and green houses.
