The report also said the IOA issued 19 written orders to terminate the construction of several residential buildings, one mosque, five wells, four cattle pens and 11 electricity projects in the cities of Al-Khalil and Qalqiliya west of the West Bank.

The report noted that the Israeli occupation forces started last week to build a new section of concrete barrier in the area north of Qalandiya village and the entrance of Shufat refugee camp in central Jerusalem, which will result in the isolation of an area of 400 hundreds dunums of Palestinian lands from the holy city.
