Days Of Palestine – Bethlehem
Israeli occupation authorities on Monday ordered a halt to the construction of 8 Palestinian houses and a park in Nahalin town in the West Bank district of Bethlehem.
Deputy mayor of Nahalin Hani Fannoun said that the Israeli occupation authorities distributed stop-work notices against a park and 8 Palestinian houses, some of which are already inhabited.
He said the Israeli occupation authorities claimed the structures are being built without Israeli license.
According to Fannoun, the Israeli occupation authorities repeatedly threatens to demolish existing homes or orders a halt to the construction of new ones under various pretexts in an attempt to empty the area of Palestinian residents and clear the way for new settlement projects.
