Palestinians in south of West Bank ordered to halt construction on structures


HEBRON, Monday, January 14, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday ordered halt on construction of Palestinian structures in Yatta town in the south of the West Bank, said a local activist.

Rateb Jabour, from the anti-settlements committee, told WAFA that Israeli forces raided al-Jawaya locality, east of Yatta, and ordered two residents to halt construction on a house, a water well and an animal barn.

Israel 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 permit to provide shelters for their families.

In contrast, Israel easily facilitates and encourages settlement construction and growth in Area C, which it seeks to annex to Israel.
