JORDAN VALLEY (The Inside Palestine) – Israeli occupation forces who raided this morning Humsa al-Bqaia Bedouin community in the northern Jordan Valley removed 12 residential tents recently placed to shelter the dozens of residents displaced in the Israeli demolition of their homes, along with tents for livestock and water tanks, according to a local official.
Mutaz Bisharat, an official with the Tubas Governorate, said the soldiers raided the community this morning and removed the tents placed there with assistance from international donors to shelter the residents who were left homeless following the recent Israeli demolitions.
He said the forces seized as well four water tankers and four water tanks.
The army demolished Humsa al-Bqaia community four times this month under the pretext that the area is designated for army training and displaced its community with a plan to relocate them to another area.
Palestinians say the army training is only an excuse to remove the Palestinians in that area in order to develop it for Israel’s illegal settlement activity.
