Haji Omar Al-Kilani, the owner of one of the four shops told LRC the following:

“About three years ago, I started a meat shop business on the main road , this business is the only source of income for my family. As soon as I started working at my shop store, I became a target of the Israeli occupation harassments, by closing the shop at one point or requesting to stop work at other times. Recently, the Israeli Civil Administration summoned me to a hearing session to review the decision to demolish the shop. The occupation is continuing its crimes against every Palestinian thing. “
