Days Of Palestine – West Bank
Israeli occupation forces ordered today a halt on the construction of residential structures and their subsequent demolition. The structures, which include two homes, are owned by residents of the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan, to the west of the occupied West Bank city of Salfit, according to local sources.
The occupation authorities handed two Palestinians an order to stop construction of their two houses and demolish them, while a third resident was handed a demolition order for his residential shack.
Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers chased farmers and shepherds while working near the village, claiming that they were close to the neighboring illegal Israeli settlements.
The village is located in the so-called Area C of the occupied West Bank, under complete Israeli control. Israel almost prohibits all kinds of urban and agricultural development for Palestinians in the area for the benefit of its settlement enterprise.
