Israeli soldiers ordered, on Tuesday, a Palestinian to halt the construction of his home, in the al-Walaja village, west of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.

Local activist Ibrahim Awadallah said several army jeeps invaded al-Walaja, before heading to Snei’ neighborhood in Ein Jweiza area, northwest of the village, where the under-construction building is located.

He added that the soldiers then handed the halt construction order to the owner, Mohammad Abu Razeq, alleging he was constructing the building without a permit from the Israeli occupation authorities.

Awadallah also said the soldiers summoned Abu Rezeq for interrogation at the Etzion military base and security center, south of Bethlehem.

On November 12, the soldiers demolished a Palestinian home, a wall, and sheds in the al-Walaja.
