JENIN, (PIC)– IOF troops entered the village of Aqaba in the northern Jordan Valley and handed residents 17 new demolition notices. Eight such notices were handed to village residents last month.

Hajj Sami Sadek, head of the village council, said that the occupation soldiers handed residents of the village demolition notices. He added that it was not the first time for some of the residents, as some of them were given demolition notices and demolitions were carried out but they rebuilt their structures.

He pointed out that the demolition notices included houses and animal pens, calling for protection for the village against plans to end Palestinian presence in the village and in the rest of the Jordan Valley.

He stressed that the villagers are determined to remain on their land and to rebuild any demolished structures.

He also said that demolition decisions were issued against 95% of the village structures, including the mosque and roads on the pretext that the village lies within zone “c” [according to Oslo accords] and that it was close to two military camps.
