Israeli Authorities Order to Stop Construction Work on Park near Bethlehem

BETHELHEM, October 21, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities Monday ordered Wadi Fukin village council to stop the construction work on a new park in the village of Wadi Fukin, west of Bethlehem, according to security sources.

They told WAFA that one of the village residents found a notice on the park land ordering them to stop the construction work on the park under the pretext of “being built without permit and on land that falls under full Israeli control”.

To be noted, the village of Wadi Fukin has been targeted by settlers’ attacks, including the seizing of agricultural land, in addition to pumping waste water coming from settlement into the village land.
