Days Of Palestine – Jordan Valley

Israeli occupation forces raided on Thursday afternoon residential tents and terrorized their residents in the village of Ein Hilweh in the Jordan Valley region in the West Bank, according to local sources.

Mahdi Daraghmeh, a local activist, told WAFA that five Israeli security guards in casual wear raided tents in the village, searched and ransacked them and terrorized their residents.

Daraghmeh said an Israeli army force raided the village while the guards were conducting the search and remained there for about two hours.

Yesterday, Israeli forces raided Atouf area in the Jordan Valley and dismantled tents and animal barns belonging to Palestinian Bedouins.

For years, Israel has been trying to completely and illegally annex the Jordan Valley, which forms 30% of the area of the West Bank, to its sovereignty by attempting to gradually drive the local Palestinian population out of the area.

Israel’s far-right Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also many times pledged to annex all the settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories and a large part of the Jordan Valley.
