RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces issued demolition orders to 11 homes in a Ramallah village on Monday, homeowners told Ma'an.

Military forces raided the village of Deir Nidham, located around 2km south of Nabi Saleh, and issued demolition orders to Ahmad Tamimi, his sons Abdul-Raziq, Hasan and Mahmoud, and their cousins Kafour, Abdul-Hafizh, Salih, Mustafa and Haitham Tamimi.

Israeli forces also issued Abdul-Kashif Tamimi with a stop-work order for his house, which is currently under construction.

Around 40 people will be made homeless if the demolition orders are carried out.

The homes slated for demolition are located opposite the Israeli settlement of Hallamish. The majority of the homes were built before the illegal settlement was founded, locals said.

Israel is planning to expand the settlement at the expense of the indigenous landowners, locals told Ma'an.

Village youths threw stones at Israeli soldiers as they entered the village, who responded with tear gas canisters and stun grenades.

Israel has adopted a policy of mass demolition of Palestinian homes in Area C, Israeli rights group B'Tselem says.

According to the group, Israel has destroyed more than 2,200 homes in the past 10 years in the occuped West Bank, leaving more than 13,000 Palestinians homeless.
