HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Monday handed multiple demolition orders to homes near the settlement of Karmi Zur in Beit Ummar, a local committee spokesman said.

Muhammad Ayyad Awad, from the popular committee against the wall, told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the Hebron village and handed out 35 demolition orders to residents.

The military orders state that if residents wish to contest the decision they must go to the Israeli Beit Eli military court before July 3.

On Tuesday, Israeli forces handed Susiya village in Hebron demolition orders for each of its 50 buildings, a week after Israeli authorities agreed to halt all construction in the area in response to a petition filed by settler group Regavim.

International law experts say that under the Fourth Geneva Convention Israel must provide for the needs of the occupied Palestinian population, and are prohibited from demolishing any structure that has a civilian purpose.
