OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) bulldozed vast tracts of cultivated land in Shufat in occupied Jerusalem on Sunday to pave the way for constructing a road.

They said that soldiers were deployed in the scene of the destruction to block citizens from approaching and to protect the bulldozers.
