Jordan Valley homes due to be demolished over ‘lack of permits
JERICHO,– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed Monday afternoon the central Jordan Valley town of Zubaydat and handed out demolition notices against houses in the town.
The houses under threat of demolition belong to Palestinian man Majed Mufdi Daraghema, local sources said, adding that the IOF troops gave him 12 hours to take them down.
Another Palestinian Fathi Ismael al-Zubaydat was forced to stop building in his home located in a classified area.
The Jordan Valley is under a fierce onslaught of raid operations and repeated demolitions against Palestinian homes by IOF troops.
In a similar incident, Israeli troops gave notices Monday to eight Palestinians in the west Salfit town of Deir Ballut to halt construction on their homes. Israeli authorities allege the homes were built without permits.
Ahmed Yousef Mustafa, mayor of Deir Ballut said the houses are located in the southern and western parts of the town and fall in a critical area and a natural expansion of the townspeople.
