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 occupied West Bank, leaving more than 13,000 Palestinians homeless.

It speaks volumes that it's hard to even get upset about this sort of swinishness. It's just Israel. It's like reading with shock -- shock -- that SS troops shot 500 Jews in ______ in 1941. That's what Nazis did; this is what Zionists do. It's what they are. It's like getting upset that your dog chases cats.

2 ) Authority Given / Both Sides

Ever since the Oslo Accords in 1993, - Israel gave to the PLO, all government authority in the West Bank's urban areas, like Ramallah, Jenin, Nablus, etc., and - the PLO gave to Israel, all government authority in the West Bank's Non-Urban areas, like Areas C and E1, until (if ever) a comprehensive peace/state agreement is reached, and - THE 11 HOMES, with demolition orders, ARE in Area C. and NOT IN RAMALLAH.

Outrageously !!!!!! It is clear that the Nakba is still in progress, After so many years and the Terrorists continue pursuing their land grab and ethnic cleansing strategy in Palestine. I hope the Palestinians will soon join the international courts and put an end to all whose Zionist crimes against the Palestinians.

Before Palestine can bring any state up on charges at the ICC, it must accept ICC laws, like the wars statues, where both: 1- targeting civilians is a criminal act, and 2- hiding behind civilians is a criminal act. Since Palestine's Hamas government will never stop doing these, while Israel's government has never started doing these, JOINING THE ICC WILL ONLY HURT PALESTINE.
