Today, June the 21st, Israeli military demolished Palestinian homes in two communities in the Jordan Valley.

At six am five military Jeeps, two Israeli Civil administration cars and two bulldozers entered the Bedouin community of Al Hadidya. They proceeded to demolish seven residential tents, 18 animal shelters and four outdoor kitchens, leaving 32 people homeless.

After the demolition of Al Hadidya, the bulldozers drove on to nearby Khirbet Yerza, where they demolished two homes and two animal shelters. As a result ten people were left homeless.

Al Hadidya is located in the northern Jordan Valley between the illegal settlements Ro'i and Beka'ot, which were built partly on their farmland. They are surrounded by military bases and the area is designated as a military zone by the Israeli Occupation Forces. Being in area C, the residents are not allowed to build anything by Israel, and are prevented from having running water and electricity. There have been up to a dozen home demolitions in Al Hadidya since 2007, with many of the resident having had their homes destroyed multiple times.

Ralia, an old woman from Al Hadidiya, has been told today by a soldier 'this is my work, sit down and shut up'.
