[ PIC 26/03/2012 – 05:26 PM ]

JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) launched a large-scale demolition campaign of buildings and installations in the northern Jordan Valley areas on Monday.

Local sources said that IOF soldiers stormed the Farisiya and Hima areas and unleashed their huge bulldozers against buildings, installations, and animal pens for the Bedouin inhabitants of the two areas.

They said that the soldiers closed off both areas and started razing buildings and tents claiming that they were built in military zones.

Ahmed Daraghme, an inhabitant in Wadi Maleh in Farisiya area, told the PIC reporter that 13 Jewish settlements in the northern and central Jordan Valley inhabited by 10000 settlers control most of the 1300 square kilometers area.

He added that the Bedouins are systematically evicted to nearby towns such as Tobas and Tamun.
