Israel orders halt on construction of eight houses in Salfit-district village

SALFIT, Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today ordered a halt on the construction of eight houses in Haris village, north of the occupied West Bank city of Salfit, according to a local official.

The village mayor, Omar Samara, said that the Israeli forces handed eight villagers military notices, ordering them to stop the construction of their houses, purportedly for being built without licenses.

Israeli refuses to permit virtually any Palestinian construction in Area C, which constitutes 60 percent of the occupied West Bank and falls under full Israeli military rule, forcing residents to build without obtaining rarely-granted permits to provide shelters for their families.

In contrast, Israel much more easily gives over 700,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in incessantly-expanding colonial settlements building permits and provides them with roads, electricity, water and sewage systems that remain inaccessible to many neighboring Palestinians.
