Israel delivers collective stop construction and removal of structures orders in Jericho-area village

JERICHO, Wednesday, November 23, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today ordered residents in the village of Zbeidat, north of Jericho in the east of the occupied West Bank, to stop the construction works on 11 residential buildings and to remove around 20 agricultural structures, according to local sources.

Sources told WAFA that Israeli soldiers stormed the village and delivered notices to stop the construction of 11 houses and the removal of around 20 agricultural structures built to keep dates, built almost two years ago.

“What is worrisome is not the issuance of these notices, but rather their collective issuance, which is a continuation of the occupation’s policy in the Jordan Vally aimed at emptying the area of its indigenous Palestinians and creating a new status quo there,” said Mohammad Ghrouf, an official in charge of the settlement file in Jericho.
