Oxfam slams Israel over destructions 25Jul10 July 26, 2010

The Palestine Chronicle -  25 July 2010

An international British-based aid agency says Israel should compensate for the damage its soldiers have inflicted on impoverished Palestinians.

Oxfam on Saturday issued a statement, which criticized Israel for wasting international money donated to Palestinians by destroying residential areas in a northern Jordan Valley village.

The statement said the villagers in al-Farisiya plunged more into poverty after Israeli army bulldozers destroyed 79 infrastructures in the area, Maan news agency reported.

Israel’s ‘destruction policy’ has had a direct impact on over 113 Palestinians, half of whom are children, according to Oxfam.

Oxfam advocacy officer Clara Flowers described the situation in the region as awful, saying that from the first look it seems that a natural disaster has ripped through the village.
