An Israeli government decision has stopped construction of the Salman Al Farisi mosque in Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The order was delivered by soldiers and attached to the front gate of the mosque.

Construction of this mosque began two years ago and it is now in it’s final stages.

Soldiers also delivered orders to Hashim Al Najjar, a resident of Burin, demanding he stop the construction of warehouses on his property.

Ghassan Daghlas, who oversees settlement files in the northern West Bank for the Palestinian Authority, states the Israeli decisions are illegal, violating international Law.

He demanded human rights groups intervene to reverse the decision.
