IOF notifies the demolition of houses in Jordan Valley

[ PIC 30/07/2012 – 02:32 PM ]

JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed on Monday Khirbet al-Mayta in Wadi al-Maleh in Northern Jordan Valley, and handed seven families military notifications to demolish their houses and evacuate the area before September claiming that the region is a closed military zone.

Khirbet al-Mayta’s population has been always threatened with the demolition of their houses and the forced deportation, as the area witnessed during the last months large demolitions that resulted in the departure of many of its residents towards Hammamet al-Maleh, which is located 2 km from the Bedouin community.

Ghallab Abu Zahou, a resident of Khirbet al-Maleh, told the PIC reporter, that the ongoing demolitions have seriously harmed the citizens that have been suffering poverty and hunger as well as the deprivation of their the most basic civil rights guaranteed by all laws and regulations.

For his part, the chairman of the Local Council, Aref Daraghmeh, said in a press statement that the occupation has been always raiding the Bedouin community in northern Jordan Valley to carry out demolitions that resulted in the displacement of many residents and turning them to refugees inside their own homeland.
