A demolition contractor operating in occupied East Jerusalem, which specializes in demolition works and recycling of construction waste. The company carried out punitive demolitions in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem as far back as 2003, and continued to perform demolitions in recent years. Among its clients are the Jerusalem Municipality, the Israeli Ministry of Interior and the Israeli Civil Administration. The company describes itself as “the leading demolition company in the Israeli Market.”

On 9 January 2011, a Caterpillar 330DL excavator, displaying the Benny & Tzvika logo, was documented demolishing the Shepherd Hotel in the Palestinian neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem. The hotel was a historical building, previously owned by the Husseini family. After 1967, it was declared “absentee property” and confiscated by the Israeli government, which sold it to Irving Moskowitz, a Jewish-American businessman and patron of Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem. The new Jewish housing project built instead of the hotel was the first settlement construction project in Sheikh Jarrah since 1967.
