The Israeli occupation army yesterday delivered demolition and stop-work orders against three homes in Nahalin town, west of occupied Bethlehem, under the pretext of unlicensed construction.

The Palestinian Information Centre reported Nahalin Deputy Mayor Hani Fannoun saying the Israeli army’s civil administration notified Ahmed Mahmoud of its intent to demolish his home in Al-Bakoush area of the town.

Two others citizens, Adel Najajera and Ra’ed Sawad, received stop-work notices ordering them to halt construction works at their homes, which are located in the same area.

A few days ago, the Israeli army confiscated two concrete mixers and forced citizens to stop construction works in the area.
