Israeli authorities have issued an order to stop the construction of a park in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin as a prelude to demolishing it.

Israeli forces entered Barta’a village, southwest of Jenin, on Monday and handed a demolition order for an amusement park, which is currently under construction, to the locals.  

Palestinian sources said the order was the third warrant issued by the Israeli military against the construction of the park.

The village and its public facilities are subject to frequent Israeli violations, including the destruction of houses and property.

This is while according to international law, the destruction of private or public property in occupied territories is prohibited.

The Israeli regime destroyed at least 359 Palestinian structures in the West Bank throughout 2014, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
