Israeli forces, on Monday morning, have demolished about ten facilities, including tents, barns and residential structures, in the Khillat Khader community of Al-Farisiyya area, east of Tubas district, northern Jordan Valley, under the pretext of “no building permit.”According to the head of the local council of al-Maleh area, Aaref Daraghmeh, Israeli troops and tanks stormed the community and demolished ten structures including tents which are home to at least four families made up of 20 people.

This is the second time these structures have been demolished by Israeli forces within the past month alone, as five structures were demolished two weeks ago.

Within the past quarter of the year, Israeli forces have already demolished more than 130 facilities, on and off.

Three weeks ago, Israel announced the confiscation of 1,540 dunams (380 acres) of land near Jericho, in the Valleys, adding that the lands are in the final stages of being declared state lands.

This seizure is the largest appropriation in the West Bank since August of 2014.

Daraghmeh said that the local council has called on international associations to provide the families with new tents, and asked for protection of Palestinians from continuous illegal Israeli demolitions.
