JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)– The Israeli army handed 15 families in the northern Jordan Valley village of Bazeeq eviction notices amid claims that their homes were erected on a closed military zone, the Jordan Valley defense committee said.

The Israelis have prohibited usage of the region and set it aside for military training and expansion of local Jewish settlements.

The army gave the families three days to evacuate their residences, and threatened them to remove them by force, demolish their homes, and seize all livestock in their possession.

Jordan Valley Defense committee head Ahmed al-Asaad said his board will stage an international campaign in part with rights groups in the nearby Tubas city to put an end to Israel’s recent series of mass displacement of Palestinians in the Jordan Valley.
