The activist NGO Regavim filed a petition late Tuesday requesting that the High Court of Justice order the West Bank Civil Administration and the IDF to halt the building of and demolish Palestinian structures near Pnei Haver in the West Bank.

The NGO said that in a routine tour of the West Bank area near the Palestinian village of Bnai Na'eem, it discovered 15 new structures that it alleges were built without a filed master plan or the required permits.

Regavim also said that the structures are in Area C, where Israel currently maintains full jurisdiction, unlike areas A and B of the West Bank, where Israel shares aspects of jurisdiction with the Palestinian Authority under the Oslo Accords.
