On Monday, 25 May 2015, the Civil Administration ordered 4 Palestinian families from Ibziq, the Jordan Valley, to evacuate their homes for the whole of the next day, as the military would be training nearby. Earlier this month, hundreds of Palestinians in the area were ordered to temporarily evacuate on short notice for the same reason. Among them were 10 families from Ibziq, including the four ordered again to evacuate on Monday. Over the last two years, Ibziq residents have been forced to evacuate their homes more than 20 times on these grounds.
