Israeli forces halt construction of school facility in Nablus-district village

NABLUS, Thursday, Israeli forces Thursday seized a concrete pump and two mixers used for the transportation of concrete to the construction site of a school facility in Furush Beit Dajan village, east of Nablus, said the school principal.

The principal of Furush Beit Dajan Secondary Co-ed School, Tawfeeq Hajj Muhammad, said that Israeli forces broke into the construction site and seized the concrete pump and two mixers.

Soldiers ordered him to halt the construction until further notice.

Furush Beit Dajan is located in the West Bank’s Area C, under full Israeli administrative and military control, where Israel rarely issues construction permits to Palestinians, forcing many to build without permits to shelter their families.

Meanwhile, Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.

Israel has seized hundreds of dunums from Furush Beit Dajan for the construction of Al-Hamra settlement, located to the west of the village, al-Hamra military base and checkpoint as well as the by-pass road No. 57, which connects the Jordan Valley to Nablus city.
