West Bank mayor to Israel: Stop building on private land

The head of a Palestinian village in the West Bank calls on Israel to halt the construction of temporary homes for Amona settlers evacuated ahead of the upcoming demolition of the outpost.

In a letter sent to the attorney general, state prosecutor and settler leaders, the mayor of Silwad says that the homes are being built illegally on private Palestinian land with the intention of thwarting a High Court ruling against such construction.

The court has ordered the outpost, which is also built on private Palestinian land, to be demolished by December 25.
