Israel issues 7 stop work orders in Bethlehem area

Oct. 25, 2010 1:53 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 26, 2010 8:46 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israel's Civil Administration issued seven stop work orders to home and barn owners in the Bethlehem district village of Al-Maniya on Monday.

One of the homeowners concerned, Na’eem Muhammad Rashayda, said the structures in question are unfinished and are being built on land categorized as Area C, under full Israeli planning control.

He said Civil Administration officers had given them between one to two hours to stop building before the structures are razed by Israeli bulldozers.

Forces told him a special committee at the Civil Administration headquarters in Beit El would convene to look into their cases and decide whether they would be allowed to continue building.

A spokesman for the Civil Administration did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Area C makes up 60 percent of the West Bank, where Palestinian building is rarely approved by Israeli authorities.
