Israeli bulldozers today demolished Palestinian structures in Khirbet Humsa al-Fawqa village, southeast of Tubas city, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Mu‘taz Besharat, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement activities in Tubas, said that Israeli soldiers escorted bulldozers and trucks into the northern Jordan Valley village, where the heavy machinery tore down structures before the structure contents and components were seized.

Israeli occupation forces also forced the Palestinian residents of the community to get into trucks to be transferred to another area, where the army took the resident’s furniture and goods in what was clearly a forced eviction and ethnic cleansing of the community.

Under international law, driving residents of an occupied territory from their homes is considered forcible transfer of protected persons, which constitutes a war crime. But residents of Palestinian communities in the Jordan Valley are no strangers to such disruptive Israeli policies.

  1. Little did the Palestinians know that they happened to be living in the ancestral home of the Khazars. If the Khazars haven’t lived in their ancestral home for 2,000 years (or ever) they can still tell the people there to get out, cut down their olive trees, bulldoze their homes, and shoot them.
