SALFIT, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) ordered for the second time the demolition of Ali Bin Abu Talib Mosque in Bruqin town, west of Salfit city, at the pretext of unlicensed construction.

Head of the municipal council in Bruqin Ikrimah Samara said he had received a similar order earlier last month, affirming that the IOA still refuses to approve its suggested structural layout of the town.

Samara appealed to international human rights organization active in the occupied Palestinian lands to pressure the IOA to endorse the new layout to save dozens of homes from demolition.

Two months ago in the same town, the IOA demolished a school for girls whose construction was funded by USAID, although it was licensed and legal.
