TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers demolished a local playground in the northern West Bank district of Tulkarem on Saturday, locals said.

Bulldozers entered Far'un village supported by soldiers and began the demolition, while Palestinian children threw stones at them, villagers said.

Residents said soldiers had ordered residents to demolish the area themselves within seven days. Further, they were told that the village would bear the cost of the demolition if Israeli forces carried it out.

The play area had cost $150,000 to build, locals added.

An Israeli military spokeswoman referred inquiries to the Civil Administration, who did not answer calls seeking comment.

In an earlier raid by Israeli forces, seven families were ordered to stop building on the eastern side of the village, and told to demolish buildings under construction.

The residents issued with the orders were identified as Nahed Saleh U’beid, Marwan Asq Allah Ammar Fawzi Tiam, Abed Ar-Rahman Rashid Hattab, Hamdan Drubi, Muneer Abdallah Omer and Ali An-Nuri.
