The Israeli army forced several Palestinian families to leave their village east of the West Bank city of Tubas Friday morning.

Troops stormed the farmers huts and houses east of the city and confiscated the resident’s ID cards before ordering them to leave the area and not to come back to their land, claming that their IDs do not indicate the place of residency, eyewitnesses said.

Israeli army soldiers stormed several villages and are still looking for farmers and villagers, whom they claim are not allowed to be in this area.

Residents have been subjected to such acts by the army for several years now in which scores of farmers were forced to leave their homes and land and go to the nearby Tubas city.

On of the targeted village is Ein Al Bida village which the army invaded in the morning and arrested several residents and sealed the village off, not allowing anyone in or out of the village, local sources said.
