Israeli soldiers distributed, on Wednesday, stop-work and demolition orders to several buildings and a water well in the southern occupied West Bank village of Wadi Rahhal, south of Bethlehem, a local source reported.

Sources told the Palestinian News and Information Agency (WAFA) that the army handed out demolition orders to a residential building, four agricultural sheds and two barracks belonging to local Palestinian residents, under the standard pretext of building without a permit.

Furthermore, Israeli forces delivered stop-work orders to two under-construction homes and a water well owned by local residents.

In nearby Artas village, residents were ordered to stop-work on their lands, southwest of Bethlehem in southern West Bank.

The occupation authorities frequently order the destruction of Palestinian-owned homes while allowing the development of colonial settlement units, deemed illegal under International Law.
