JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities on Sunday ordered the demolition of part of a Palestinian school in East Jerusalem, a Palestinian official said.
Samir Jabril, a Palestinian Authority education official, said the Jerusalem municipal council decided to demolish the top floor of an elementary school in Sharafat village.
The floor, which consists of three classrooms and a staff room, was added in 2000.
Israeli authorities ordered the demolition of the four rooms several years ago, but the school has been fighting the case, Jibril told Ma'an.
