Israel forces Jerusalemite to demolish home on 6 January 2020 [Ma'an News Agency]
Israeli forces ordered this week a halt on the construction of a Palestinian basic school and confiscated a bulldozer which was working on the project in the village of Kisan, near the city of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, reported Wafa News Agency.
A large Israeli military force raided the village and ordered the workers at the site to stop the construction, under the pretext that the school was being built without an Israeli permit.
The soldiers confiscated a bulldozer and threatened to arrest the workers in the event they resumed the works.
The area where the construction is ordered to stop is located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli administrative and military control, where Israel rarely issues construction permits to Palestinians, forcing many people to build without permits.
