Israeli army demolishes animal sheds and farmers’ huts in the Jordan valley
by Ghassan Bannoura
Israeli army bulldozers on Monday morning demolished Palestinian-owned animal sheds and farmers’ huts in the Jordan valley, located in the eastern part of the West Bank.The Israeli army stormed the Al Bak'a valley area, demolishing the huts and sheds, barring farmers from removing their belongings and forcing them to leave, local farmers stated.
The farmers added that they had been living on and working the land for hundreds of years.
The Israeli army justified their actions by stating that the area is a closed military zone and is therefore closed to Palestinian access.
The Israeli army has increased attacks on Palestinian farmers in the Jordan valley over the past year in light of plans to construct the illegal Wall in the area. The construction of the wall will rob Palestinians in the area of land and water resources, leaving local residents imprisoned inside one 64 West Bank cantons with no source of income.
