On Wednesday, the Israeli occupation army issued orders halting the construction and renovation of eleven Palestinian homes north of Jericho in the northeastern West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers invaded the Khallet Al-Foola area in the Al-Jiftlik village, north of Jericho, and handed orders halting the construction and restoration of eleven homes.

They added that the homes were built using iron-fortified concrete, some are still being restored and renovated, and others were built between 1960 and 1975.

The homes’ owners were also summoned for interrogation; the army claims the homes were built without permits from the “Civil Administration Office,” the administrative branch of the illegal Israeli occupations.

The homes constructed before 1967 were built before Israel occupied the rest of Palestine that year, and the remaining homes were licensed by the Local Council in Jericho.

In related news, the soldiers abducted a young man, Khaled Raed Qassem, 20, from the Aqabat Jaber refugee camp, after stopping him at a military roadblock at the southern entrance of Jericho city.
