NABLUS, January 28, 2012 (WAFA) – Some 20 Palestinian residents from Khirbat al-Tawil, a locale east of the village of Aqraba, south of Nablus, declared an open-ended hunger strike on Saturday to protest an Israeli plan to demolish their homes and force them to leave the area, said Ghassan Daghlas, an activist monitoring settlement activities in the northern West Bank.

He said the residents were protesting Israeli army night raids on their homes and orders to demolish them with an aim to empty the area of its Palestinian residents.

He said the Israeli military authorities consider the locale a “closed military area” while the villagers continue to file objections to the several demolition orders they have been receiving.

Israeli forces handed demolition notices to two homes in Khirbet al-Tawil 10 days ago and another three demolition orders to two brothers in Aqraba.

Watch Caught on Camera: Ethnic Cleansing

Netanyahu’s Likud on it’s website: “The Jordan River as a Permanent Border”
The Jordan Valley and the territories that dominate it shall be under Israeli sovereignty. The Jordan river will be the permanent eastern border of the State of Israel. The Kingdom of Jordan is a desirable partner in the permanent status arrangement between Israel and the Palestinians in matters that will be agreed upon.


The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.
