HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israel's Civil Administration on Wednesday handed a demolition order to an electricity company in the southern West Bank, the Land Research Center said.

The power company, in Umm Sidra near al-Ramadin village in the Hebron district, has supplied electricity since 2006 to 25 homes in the neighborhood, which is close to Israel's separation wall.

Resident Omar Jaffal told the center the notice ordered the building's demolition within one week.

The center said Israeli authorities informed the company on March 13 that it must stop operating. Israel has also ordered the demolition of a number of homes and farm buildings in the area.

The neighborhood is in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control.

Israel frequently demolishes homes and infrastructure in Area C built without Israel's permission. Residents, rights groups and the UN point out that it nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits are denied.
