Israeli occupation authorities on Tuesday issued demolition and stop construction orders against 13 Palestinian houses in the village of Qabalan, south of the occupied northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to an official source.
Ghassan Daghlas, a local official, was quoted by WAFA news agency as stating that the Israeli forces raided the village and handed the orders against the 13 houses located in the northern part of the village under the pretext that they were built without a permit and that they are located in Area C of the West Bank, which is under full Israeli military rule.
He added that some of these houses are already inhabited while others are in the final stages of construction.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces seized two caravans in the village of Susya in Masafer Yatta, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
Jihad al-Nawaja’a, head of the Susya village council, told WAFA that the forces seized two caravans, one of which is a residential structure while the other is used for storage, both owned by a local Palestinian resident.
He noted that the two caravans were seized under the pretext that they were located in Area C.
At the same time, forces seized a tractor owned by a resident of Bardala village in the northern Jordan Valley, according to Mutaz Bisharat, a local official.
