BETHLEHEM, Monday, August 30, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli military government today issued stop-work orders against a mosque and nine houses in the southern West Bank village of Nahalin, west of Bethlehem, according to Nahalin deputy mayor Hani Fanoun.

He told WAFA that the orders were issued against four already inhabited houses and a mosque and five other houses that were still under construction on the pretext they were built without a permit.

An order was also issued to stop work on building retaining walls.

Israel has been targeting houses in Nahalin in order to empty the land for the benefit of an illegal settlement built on village lands.
