The Road Map to Peace is going really well.


The Israeli occupation army has bulldozed a US-funded public park, including a children's playground and swimming pool, in a West Bank village, witnesses and officials said.

The bulldozer, protected by a force of Israeli soldiers, demolished the park in Azzun, close to the northern town of Qalqilya on Wednesday, on the grounds that it had been built without permission of the Israeli authorities in the occupied territory.

Construction work on the park had begun in November and was almost completed, the mayor of Azzun, Ihsan Abd al-Latif, said.

He said that the project, which cost around $120,000, had been financed by the US Agency for International Development (USAid). Full Article.
