BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– Israeli Occupation Authority (IOA) on Tuesday handed three orders to Samih Salah to stop the construction of agricultural structures and to raze his home for lacking construction permits. The facilities to be demolished include a home with an area of 160 square meters, a room, and a caravan used for agricultural purposes in Alia hamlet in al-Khader town to the west of Bethlehem. Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the anti-settlement national committee in al-Khader town, told Quds Press that the IOA has been waging a large-scale demolition campaign in the town since the beginning of the year. Israeli forces last year knocked down 23 Palestinian houses and structures and handed out 36 demolition orders in Bethlehem under the pretext of lacking construction permits, according to the Land Research Center’s report.
