Israeli Forces Hand Demolition and Stop-Construction Notices to Palestinians in Hebron, Bethlehem


HEBRON, September 18, (WAFA) – Israeli forces handed Thursday several demolition and stop-construction notices to Palestinians in a Hebron town and a Bethlehem village, said municipal sources.

Israeli forces raided Idhna to the west of Hebron, where they handed three Palestinians notices to demolish their homes in Khalit Ibrahim to the west of the town.

Idhna Municipality Public Relations Director Abdul-Rahman al-Tmaizi said that each home has an area of 150 square meters and has been populated for the last ten years.

He added that the demolition notices are part of the Israeli coercive tactics and attempts to forcibly transfer the indigenous residents and impose a fait accompli; attempts that have intensified following the construction of the apartheid wall that have engulfed thousands of dunams of Palestinian land to the west and southwest of the town.

Meanwhile, large troops, escorting ‘Civil Administration’ officers, raided  and deployed at the main entrance of Kisan to the east of Bethlehem, where they handed at least five Palestinians notices to stop the constriction of their populated homes, according to Head of Kisan Local Council Hussein Ghazal.

Both Ghazzal and al-Tmzizi appealed to concerned local and international human rights organizations to support and reinforce the Palestinian steadfastness in such areas.
