Al-Khalil: Eight villages threatened with demolition

[ PIC 08/11/2012 – 01:46 PM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– A second Palestinian Nakba is planned to be implemented by demolishing eight villages in southern al-Khalil district and displacing hundreds of their residents by the Israeli forces under flimsy pretexts.

The Popular Committee Coordinator in Yatta, Rateb Jabour, told PIC that the land of the eight villages is located in strategic and vital land. “The villages’ land was important to the residents who lived in it for hundreds of years even before the occupation and colonization,” he added.

The villages’ residents were subjected to expulsion in 1988 and 1990 where they were asked by the occupation army to leave the area under the pretext of turning the area into a military zone, Jabour stressed.

Jabour said that the eight villages located in an area of ​​50 thousand dunums in which 2500 people are living, in addition to hundreds of barns and other facilities needed by farmers and land owners.

The eight villages are considered a valid bulwark in face of Judaization process implemented in all parts of Palestine, where they are surrounded by more than 10 settlements, and according to Jabour the occupation controlled the villages’ lands under military arguments in order to hand them to the settlers.

The villages’ residents sent letters to the Palestinian national factions and institutions and legal bodies calling them to intervene to stop their suffering, where their houses have been daily stormed in order to demolish the school and to remove the solar panels and to intimidate citizens, children and women in order to force them to leave.

The popular Committees called on all citizens to engage in popular resistance to address the Israeli attacks, stressing that solidarity and supportive events and the authorities’ officials’ serious moves will play an important role in curbing the occupation’s Judaizing plans that target the Palestinian daily life.

The daily Palestinian citizens’ life became threatened by the Israeli danger especially the settlers’ attacks protected by Israeli soldiers, in addition to the Israeli patrols and stormings into the villages where the soldiers assaulted the workers and confiscated their properties, which means that these attacks aim to implement the decision of removal by any way.

The Israeli occupation had announced its intention to demolish the eight villages, while hundreds of villages located in the West Bank suffer the same Israeli Judaization threat.
