Israel has also frequently confiscated the Palestinian lands in these areas, to use them for the construction and expansion of its illegal colonies, in addition to using some of them as ‚Äúclosed military zones.‚ÄĚ
The army also frequently displaces the Bedouins and farmers in the area, to conduct live-fire military drills, including the use of explosives, and in the process devastating and destroying the lands.
Many Palestinians, including children, have been killed, or injured, by Israeli army fire during these military drills, in the Jordan Valley and several parts of the West Bank, in addition to being killed by explosives dropped by the military during these drills.
