without comments

A Palestinian who lives in the village of Dura Al Qara in the Occupied West Bank appealed to the Supreme Court demanding the enforcement of demolition orders issued for structures built on his land. Five large permanent structures are currently being built on land owned by Palestinian individuals. These lands were seized in the nineteen seventies by the Israeli army, for temporary military use. The appellant has recently noticed ground-breaking work being done to prepare for the construction of civilian structures on the seized lands, probably for residential use by the Beth El settlement.
