Israeli forces issue stop-work orders in Hebron village

Feb. 23, 2014 9:08 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 24, 2014 2:16 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday issued stop-work orders to the owners of several buildings a village west of Hebron, a local official said.

Hashem al-Tomeize told Ma'an that Israeli forces entered the village of Ithna and delivered stop-work orders for buildings that were being constructed without permits.

Al-Tomeize, who heads up the Ithna municipality, noted that the buildings were located within Area C, under complete Israeli control.

He said Mahmoud Azmi Abu Jheisheh received a stop-work order for his house and two chicken coups, and Sufjan Abu Jheisheh received an order to stop constructing his workshop in the same area, while Arafat Abu Jheisheh was issued one for his sheep stable.

Al-Tomeizi condemned the move, saying it was an attempt to evict Ithna residents.

Figures from the Israeli NGO Bimkom show that around 95 percent of applications for building permits are rejected in Area C.
