HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday issued stop-work orders to the owners of several buildings a village west of Hebron, a local official said.

Hashem al-Tomeize told Ma'an that Israeli forces entered the village of Ithna and delivered stop-work orders for buildings that were being constructed without permits.

Al-Tomeize, who heads up the Ithna municipality, noted that the buildings were located within Area C, under complete Israeli control.

He said Mahmoud Azmi Abu Jheisheh received a stop-work order for his house and two chicken coups, and Sufjan Abu Jheisheh received an order to stop constructing his workshop in the same area, while Arafat Abu Jheisheh was issued one for his sheep stable.

Al-Tomeizi condemned the move, saying it was an attempt to evict Ithna residents.

Figures from the Israeli NGO Bimkom show that around 95 percent of applications for building permits are rejected in Area C.

How about not building illegal structures instead of whining when you are caught doing it? Palestinians constantly demand statehood but cant even abide by a building code. As for quoting an Anti Zionist NGO on the # of building permits, Palestinians receive just as many as Charedim, a Jewish demographic of the same size and have less demolitions than Charedim. Is Israel Anti Semitic now? The Regional Plan, RJ/5, was not made by Israel but by Britain. Palestinians are treated the same as anyone.
