Israeli occupation forces demolished, on Tuesday, a Palestinian-owned home in the village of Al-Bweireh, east of Hebron, in the southern West Bank, and delivered 17 stop-construction orders in the village of Ein ad-Duyuk at-Tahta, west of Jericho, in the northeastern West Bank, according to local sources.

A large army force stormed, on Tuesday, the village of Al-Bweireh, east of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank, accompanied by two bulldozers.

Media sources said that Israeli authorities ordered the demolition of a two-storey home in the village, belonging to Badr Shukri Sultan Al-Tamimi and his family, under the pretext of lacking of an Israeli-issued permit.

It was added that the occupation bulldozers proceeded to demolish the home, in addition to razing farm land belonging to the family.

The Al-Tamimi family home was built for the cost of approximately one million shekels ($ 263,141.00 USD).

Israeli soldiers blocked local Palestinians from approaching the site, and detained journalists to obstruct their ability to cover the event, while inspecting their identities.

Meanwhile, in the village of Al-Walaja, northwest of Bethlehem, in the southern West Bank, occupation demolished, on Tuesday, stone walls surrounding property owned by a local Palestinian family.

According to Khader Al-Araj, the head of the village council, the army used a bulldozer to destroy stone walls surrounding land owned by the Al-Kuntar family, under the same pretext of building without a permit.

In related news, the Israeli occupation authorities ordered 17 Palestinians to stop work on their homes, in the village of Ein ad-Duyuk at-Tahta, just west of the northeastern West Bank city of Jericho.

According to Palestinian activist, Alaa Fhaidat, Israeli forces stormed the village, on Tuesday, and distributed stop-work orders to 17 Palestinian-owned homes, some of which are inhabited, and others that are in the construction stage.

In the central occupied West Bank, Israeli forces confiscated a concrete mixer truck and a concrete pump from Palestinians who were building a home in the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan, northwest of Salfit.
