Israel delivers stop-work order of Palestinian home in Beit Ummar

Nov. 4, 2018 3:25 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 5, 2018 11:36 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces along with staff from the Israeli Civil Administration stormed Beit Ummar village, in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, and ordered half of construction of a Palestinian home, on Sunday.

Locals confirmed that Israeli forces delivered the halt of construction order to the owner, Thaer Mahmoud Ali al-Alami, and ordered him to halt construction of his 150-square-meter home.

The order was delivered to al-Alami under the pretext of being built without the difficult-to-obtain Israeli permit.

Locals pointed out that Israeli forces attempted to confiscate a truck full of building materials that was parked in front of al-Alami’s home, however, Beit Ummar residents prevented the confiscation.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, the estimated 550,000 Jewish Israeli settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory are more easily given building permits and allowed to expand their homes and properties, despite living in settlements that violate international law.

Nearly all Palestinian applications for building permits in Area C are denied by the Israeli authorities, forcing communities to build illegally.
