To prevent any Palestinian development in the Jordan Valley, IOF seize tractor

December 14, 2020 (The inside Palestine) – In their efforts to prevent any Palestinian development in the occupied Jordan Valley in the West Bank, which is under the risk of annexation by the Israeli occupation authorities, Israeli forces today seized a tractor while working on reclaiming Palestinian-owned lands.

Human rights activist Aref Daraghme said Israeli soldiers seized a tractor owned by al-Maleh village council in the northern Jordan Valley while helping Palestinian farmers in reclaiming and plowing their lands in order to plant them.

He said the soldiers also impounded a car owned by the head of al-Maleh village council Mahdi Daraghme.

Israel attempts to reduce Palestinian activity and presence in the Jordan Valley, which makes almost a third of the area of the occupied West Bank and considered the breadbasket of Palestine, after it decided to annex it, a step that has provoked worldwide condemnation.
