IOF orders demolition of Palestinian homes in Bethlehem, arrests 4 in Silwan
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) served demolition notices to the owners of seven houses east of Bethlehem, south of the West Bank, local sources said.
They added that an IOF unit stormed the area on Monday and ordered the landlords to immediately tear down their houses.
IOF soldiers on Sunday night arrested two Palestinian minors at the entrance to Beit Ummar village, north of Al-Khalil.
In occupied Jerusalem, Israeli occupation police rounded up four Palestinians in Silwan on Monday after throwing stones at the policemen and at the Beit Yonatan, which is controlled by Jewish settlers in the suburb.
The Israeli occupation authority on Sunday ordered the evacuation of six buildings owned by Palestinians in the northern area of the Bustan suburb in Silwan, which led to clashes between citizens and policemen.
