Israel orders construction of house near Bethlehem to stop, seizes equipment

 

BETHLEHEM, Saturday, January 04, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli military ordered today a halt on the construction of a Palestinian-owned house in the village of Nahalin near Bethlehem city in the occupied West Bank and seized building equipment, including a pump and two cement mixers, according to a local source.

Hani Fannoun, head of Nahalin municipality, told WAFA that an Israeli military force raided the site of the construction and ordered the workers to stop the work under the pretext of lack of an Israeli building permit. The forces also confiscated the building equipment, he said.

The area where the construction is ordered to stop is located in what is classified as C, which makes up about 60 percent of the West Bank and is under full Israeli administrative and military control, where Israel rarely issues construction permit to Palestinians, forcing many to build without one.
