Israeli soldiers invaded, Monday, the al-Jawaya area, east of Yatta town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and handed orders halting the construction of a home and a well.
Rateb Jabour, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in southern West Bank, said the targeted property belongs to Issa Hasan Shawaheen, and is being built on his own land.
He added that the army issued, over the past few months, more than ten orders, including demolition warrants, targeting Palestinian homes and structures in that area alone.
The Israeli army said the Palestinian did not obtain permits from the Israeli Civil Administration Office, which runs the administrative aspect of Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank.
Israel has been preventing the Palestinians from building, or expanding existing property, in Area C of the occupied West Bank, under full military and administrative control.
Area C is more than %60 of the West Bank and is also subject to the seriously-escalating construction and expansion of Israel’s illegal colonies, in direct violation of International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
