NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Monday told six Palestinian families in the Nablus district their homes would be demolished and ordered them to vacate within 48 hours, an official said.

The families were from Um Ar-Rashash, near Duma village, Palestinian Authority settlement affairs officer Ghassan Doughlas said.

He added that the PA had authorized $100,000 to build a school in the area, whose 300 residents support themselves by farming.

A call to Israel's Civil Administration after business hours Monday was not immediately returned.
