Palestinians in the Jordan valley have reported several harrassments by IOF and settlers, and are now subjected to displacement for settlement expansion.

Two weeks ago, IOF demolished five residential tents and barracks, in addition to animal barns in the Killat Khader area, northern Jordan Valleys, following Israeli confiscation of 1,540 Dunams (380 acres), of land near Jericho in the Valleys, announcing it as state lands.

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