Israel razes two Palestinian homes in Ara


RAMALLAH, — Israeli bulldozers razed two Palestinian homes in Ara village, in the Triangle area occupied since 1948, at the pretext of lack of construction permits.

The demolition, which took place at dawn, was protected by large numbers of policemen, who blocked citizens from heading to the scene to defend the houses.

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Wednesday served eight demolition notices to Bedouin families in the southern Jordan Valley.

Eyewitnesses said that the notices were delivered in the wake of a raid on those areas north of Jericho.

IOF bulldozers also leveled vast areas of land in Oja area in Jordan Valley in preparation for controlling the land, locals reported.
