Official: Israel demands 52,500 shekels to delay home demolitions

Dec. 26, 2012 9:37 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 29, 2012 7:39 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israel's high court on Wednesday ordered 21 Palestinians to pay 52,500 shekels to delay the demolition of their homes in the northern West Bank, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity, told Ma'an the homeowners, from Yatma, were ordered to pay 2,500 shekels to the court by Friday to delay demolition while the court considers their case.

Hamid Sunuber, head of Fatah in the village, said Israel ordered the demolitions because the homes are in Area C, the 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli control.

Sunuber questioned the timing of the demolition orders. "Is this a response to the recognition of Palestine as a non-member state in the UN General Assembly?" he asked.
