    Israel is due to begin demolishing 100 Palestinian homes near the separation barrier after a seven-year battle in Israeli courts.

    Many worry that a legal precedent has been set in Wadi al-Hummus, this being the first time demolition orders have been issued for 16 properties built with permits from the Palestinian Authority on land under its sole administration.
