Palestinian shop owner is threatened at gunpoint by Israeli settlers after questioning them about the damage they had done to his shop roof
Israeli settlers took over a roof of a Palestinian shop on Al-Shalala Street in the Old City, while under the protection of the Israeli Occupation Force. The settlers have built a water basin and placed various plants on the roof, taking full advantage of a 17 year old military order which prevents shop owners from using their roofs. Shop owner As’ad Abu Munshar said that leakage from the water basin has caused severe damage to the cement walls of the shop. When he first began to hear the heavy hammering coming from the roof, he climbed up and asked the settlers what was going on. One settler responded by pointing his weapon at Abu Munshar and threatening to shoot him if he did not leave immediately.
