Occupation to destroy Palestinian village in West Bank

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, West Bank –Israeli occupation authorities decided on Thursday to expel residents and destroy the Palestinian village of Ein al-Rashrash near West Bank city of Nablus.

The Israeli occupation authorities gave the residents of the Palestinian village an ultimatum until next Monday.

“They have to evacuate their homes and leave the village very soon,” an Israeli government official, preferred to remain unknown, said.

Atef Daghlas, anti-settlement activist, said: “The Israeli occupation authorities officially informed the residents of the village to leave their homes as it will destroy the village on next Monday.”

Daghlas said that 85 Palestinian citizens have been living Ein al-Rashrash for decades and they are going to be homeless soon.

“This is a humanitarian massacre carried out by the Israeli occupation against a complete Palestinian village which residents inherited from their grandfathers,” Daghlas said.

Concluding his speech to Days of Palestine, Daghlas called on the rights groups and international community to put pressure on the Israeli occupation to prevent it from destroying the village and expelling its indigenous residents.
