Israel orders stop-construction of 2 Palestinian homes in Ithna

March 25, 2019 3:48 P.M. (Updated: March 25, 2019 4:55 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces delivered halt of construction notices to several Palestinian homes and agricultural structures in Ithna, west of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank, on Monday.

The Ithna Municipality reported that Israeli forces delivered stop-construction notices to two house belonging to locals Shihahdeh and Mahmoud Wajih al-Jayyawi; Shihadeh lives in the house along with his 12-member family.

The municipality added that Israeli soldiers also delivered halt of construction notices to several agricultural structures in the area.

While Idhna's built-up areas are predominantly classified as Area B under the Oslo Accords, the majority of its surrounding land is classified Area C.

Under the Oslo Accord, building permits must be approved by the Israeli Civil Administration for construction to take place in Area C.

As a result of rarely-approved permits, however, Palestinian residents are often forced to build structures without permits, which are liable to be torn down later by Israeli forces.
