The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) on Monday issued ten demolition orders against Palestinian homes and animal corrals in the Jordan Valley at the pretext of unlicensed building.
The demolition notices were served to citizens in Tobas, Fasayel and Jaftelk owning animal enclosures.
Three were distributed in Jaftelk, six in Fasayel and one in Tobas.
The IOA locks Palestinian building in many Jordan Valley areas at the pretext they were proclaimed natural sanctuaries.
Meanwhile, the IOA approved the construction of 112 housing units in Bethlehem district despite the partial freeze on construction in the West Bank.
The minister of environment claimed in a statement to the Israeli army radio on Monday that the freeze decision stipulated that exceptions might be made if security problems occurred in infrastructures, which were initiated before the decision.
