Israel Issues Demolition Orders In Hebron

Israeli forces issued demolition orders to two Palestinian families in a southern West Bank village, on Thursday, according to a local official.


Hashim Tmeizi, the mayor of the village of Idhna, west of Hebron, told Ma'an News Agency that Israeli soldiers issued demolition orders to Hamza Muhammad Zghayyar and Hijazi Abd al-Fattah Zghayyar.

The houses to be demolished were built more than five years ago, Tmeizi said, adding that a total of 13 people would become homeless if the buildings were demolished.

Israeli forces have recently issued hundreds of demolition and stop-work orders to Idhna residents, he said, noting that Israel confiscated most of what originally made up Idhna in 1948, and took even more land in recent years, when the separation wall was built.
