PNN/ Hebron/

Israeli occupation authorities on Sunday has ordered halt of construction of a Palestinian owned house East of Yatta town, southern Hebron, under the pretext of no building permit.

According to locals,  the Israeli civil administration, accompanied by a military unit stormed the area east of Yatta, and handed the owner a notice to stop the construction works on his house, under the pretext of no permit to build in the area.

Residents of Yatta and the southern Hebron hills have been heavily subjected to such orders, since Israel continues to build settlements in C areas of the occupied West Bank, which fall under Israeli military and civil control.
