Israel again destroys and confiscates structures donated to residents of Khirbet Humsah al-Foqa
On Monday, 22 February 2021, at around 9:00 AM, Civil Administration personnel came with a military escort to the community of Khirbet Humsah al-Foqa in the northern Jordan Valley, where Israel has destroyed structures five times in the past few months, most recently on Feb. 16 2020. The forces dismantled and confiscated 12 tents that housed families numbering a total of 74 people, including 41 minors, as well as four tents used as livestock pens. The forces also destroyed six livestock enclosures and confiscated four water tank trailers and an additional four plastic water tanks. The forces also confiscated four unbuilt tents, two of which were set to be used for housing and two for livestock.
The tents and other items were donated to families in the community by the ICRC, the Consortium and the Ministry against the Fence and Settlements in the Palestinian Authority last week.
