Inother news, an Israeli military force stormed the Far’aa town near Nablus and handed military orders to residents Bassam and Hussam Suleiman demanding them to demolish their houses and leave claiming that their house is very close to the annexation wall and poses a security threat.

In the southern West Bank village of Susia near Hebron, Israeli forces handed over eviction orders to 50 families in the village.
