IMEMC & Agencies: Tuesday, at dawn, a number of armored Israeli military jeeps have invaded several Palestinian communities in the West Bank’s Northern Plains, demolishing two homes, in addition to various agricultural structures and wells.
Aref Daraghma, head of the Wadi Al-Maleh and Bedouin Tribes Local Council in Tubas, in the central West Bank, stated that the soldiers invaded the Al-Bqei’a and Al-Adasa areas, demolished two homes and some water wells. He said that the soldiers declared the two areas closed military zones, preventing residents and journalists from entering.
Daraghma added that the owners of the destroyed properties did not receive any official orders or prior warning.
“These violations are part on ongoing violations against the people, their homes and property”, he said, “They are targeting the residents and their livelihood. They want the people out of their homes and lands. They want to build and expand their illegal settlements”.
On Monday, soldiers surrounded a number of homes and tents in the Najada area, in Al-‘Oja, in the West Bank district of Jericho, invading and demolishing two homes and four sheds.
