Israel hands demolition orders to village mosque, homes

Nov. 30, 2010 6:17 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 1, 2010 9:14 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) – Israeli forces on Monday handed demolition notices to a mosque and the owners of two homes in Al-Ma'sara village south of Bethlehem, locals said.

Six military jeeps entered the village and soldiers delivered the orders and photographed the homes and the mosque, said Awad Abu Sway, who coordinates settlement issues in the Bethlehem district.

The homes slated for demolition belong to Mahmoud Zawahrer and Awad Zawahreh, who were summoned to appear at an Israeli court on 23 December, Abu Sway said.

He added that a lawyer would be appointed to appeal the demolitions.

Officials with the Israeli Civil Administration did not respond to requests for information by e-mail.
