NORTHERN JORDAN VALLEY,(PIC)– Occupation bulldozers started on Tuesday morning demolishing Palestinian houses in Al-Meeta hamlet in Wadi-Al-Maleh northern Jordan Valley in the eastern West Bank.

Municipality chief of Wadi-Al-Maleh and Bedouin villages, Aref Daraghmeh, told Quds Press that IOF broke into Al-Meeta hamlet in Wadi al-Maleh area in the northern part of the occupied Jordan Valley, handing notifications for the demolition of four Palestinian houses. He also pointed out that the Israeli bulldozers raided the area before the expiry of the warning period and started demolishing several houses and forced other families to demolish their homes with their own hands.

Daraghmeh added that the bulldozers and demolition machinery accompanied by Israeli Military forces prevented citizens from addressing them or to get close of the area under the pretext that it is a closed military area, effectively banning Palestinian access to it.

Daraghmeh pointed out that the Israeli military forces have ordered a large number of Palestinian families to leave their homes in Wadi-Al-Maleh a couple of days as the army prepares to carry out military maneuvers in the area. He added that this systematic Israeli aggression aims to evacuate the area from its Palestinian residents and to take control over it.
