Israeli forces on Sunday threatened the demolition of a clinic under construction in the al-Maleh area in the northern Jordan Valley, according to local sources.
Human rights activist Aref Daraghmeh said that Israeli forces delivered a notice for the demolition of a clinic under construction in the al-Maleh area.
Almost a month ago, Israeli forces delivered notices for the demolition of educational facilities in the same area, according to WAFA news agency.
"For decades, the Israeli authorities have been implementing a policy aimed at driving out scores of communities, that are home to thousands of Palestinians. They have made living conditions miserable and intolerable with a view to establishing facts on the ground and taking over these areas," said the Israeli information center for human rights in occupied territories, B'Tselem.
The Jordan Valley, which is a fertile strip of land running west along the Jordan River, is home to about 65,000 Palestinians and makes up approximately 30% of the area of the occupied West Bank.
Israel has plans to annex the Jordan Valley, which is strongly opposed by the Palestinian people and the entire international community.
