Israelis Demolish Shacks in Jordan Valley

Wafa News Agency | March 26, 2012


TOUBAS, March 26, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities Monday demolished a number of Palestinian shacks in al-Himma area in the southern parts of the occupied Jordan Valley, according to a local official.

Aref Daraghmeh, head of Wadi al-Maleh village council, said Israeli forces stormed al-Himma area and demolished shacks used as dwellings by local farmers and shepherds.

He added that the Israeli authorities had notified the residents of its decision to demolish the shacks, but the farmers never appealed the decision to court.

He said this was not the first time the Israeli authorities demolish dwellings in the Jordan Valley area, which is part of a policy to vacate the scarcely populated valley of its local residents for the benefit of internationally considered illegal Jewish settlements that are mushrooming in that region.
