The notices give the owners a period of 30 days to file petition against the order at Israeli courts, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported.

Witnesses said that a municipality crew arrived in the area and took photographs of the houses and the mosque.

Also included in the notices were orders to demolish a 140-square-meter mosque, built seven months ago, a 120-square meter house which houses 10 family members, a house still under construction, and a house built nearly 200 years ago, in addition to three parking garages.
