The Israeli occupation authorities resumed on Monday demolition of Palestinian structures in Khirbet Humsa al-Fouqa, in the northern Jordan Valley, according to local sources.

Human rights activist Aref Daraghme was quoted by WAFA news agency as stating that an army force raided the community and immediately went on demolishing tents and structures owned by Palestinians in the area.

Local official Mutaz Bisharat also said that the army has destroyed tents owned by three Palestinian families and seized a privately-owned car, as the operation was still ongoing.

Most of the structures in the community were demolished in November of last year in Israel’s efforts to empty the Jordan Valley of its Palestinian residents as it seeks to annex it despite international outcry against the illegal annexation of occupied Palestinian territories.
