15 families to go homeless as Israel orders evacuation for military drills

TUBAS/PNN/

Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) ordered on Wednesday 15 Palestinian families to evacuate their homes in the northern Jordan Valley, paving the way for projected military maneuvers in the area.

Local anti-settlement activist Motaz Bisharat told Palestaine News Net Work PNN that the Israeli Civil Administration handed evacuation notifications to 15 Palestinian families in preparation for army drills.

The IOA claimed the evacuation is only provisional.

Quoted by a PIC news correspondent, a Palestinian native inhabitant of the Jordan Valley said: “Where should our children and wives seek shelter now? This has always been the case, we’ll be wandering in streets until military maneuvers are over.”

How dare Israelis force us out of our own and only homes just to carry out drills and prop up military grip around our neck? It’s like stealing our loafs of bread and forcing us to pay the price,” said an elderly woman.
