6 families ordered to vacate homes for demolition


Ma’an - NABLUS – Israeli forces on Monday told six Palestinian families in the Nablus district their homes would be demolished and ordered them to vacate within 48 hours, an official said.

He added that the PA had authorized $100,000 to build a school in the area, whose 300 residents support themselves by farming.
