Israel issues stop-work orders for park near Bethlehem

Oct. 21, 2013 10:11 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 22, 2013 12:46 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday issued stop-work orders for a recreational park west of Bethlehem, a local official said.

Mayor of Wadi Fukin, Ahmad Sukkar, told Ma'an that the village council began constructing the park in cooperation with local organizations.

Israeli authorities claimed the park was unlicensed and issued orders to halt construction immediately.

The stop-work order is the latest in a series of measures targeting the village, Sukkar said.

Over 2,500 acres of land have been confiscated from Wadi Fukin for surrounding Israeli settlements and several key roads leading to the village have been closed.

Wadi Fukin is bordered by Israeli settlements to its northern and eastern side and the planned route of Israel's separation wall to its west.
