Days Of Palestine - Jordan Valley

The Israeli occupation army informed residents of Hamsa al-Tahta, in the northern Jordan Valley, of its intention to destroy residential structures, remove fences and uproot trees in their area, said Aref Daraghme, a local rights activist on Tuesday.

He said the occupation army claims the structures, fences and trees are located in an archeological area and therefore they will be removed.
