JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) detained a group of foreign solidarity activists while en route to ferry supplies to inhabitants of the plagued northern Jordan Valley.
Local sources said that the soldiers blocked passage of those activists, claiming that the area was a closed military zone.
They said that the soldiers also refused the entry of building and heating materials to Malih tribes that were targeted by an IOF demolition spree over the past week.
The coordinator of the European youth campaign said in a press release that the soldiers stopped eight foreign activists while on their way to Mayta and Malih hamlets.
She said that the young activists were planning to stay at the hamlets for a few days to protect inhabitants from the incessant IOF attacks.
She said that the soldiers searched them then forced them to leave aboard an army bus that took them to the outskirts of Jericho, and told them not to come back or else face arrest.
