Israel issues 3 demolition orders to Bedouins in Jordan Valley

12:00 Sep 18 2011 Al-Farisiya and al-Himma communities, Jordan Valley

TUBAS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces issued three demolition orders on Sunday to residents of Bedouin communities in the northern Jordan Valley.

Head of al-Malih local council Arif Daraghmah said Israeli forces stormed the area and handed demolition orders to three residents from the al-Farisiya and al-Himma communities, warning them that steel structures they own face demolition.

Israeli forces harass Bedouin communities in the Jordan Valley in order to force them to leave the area, Daraghmah said, adding that Israel wants their land in order to expand settlements.

The families targeted by demolition orders have been living in the northern Jordan Valley for decades and own the land they live on, Daramagh added.
