Israel evacuates 4 families in Jordan Valley

Aug. 6, 2018 5:21 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 7, 2018 11:39 A.M.)
TUBAS (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities forced four Palestinian families, in the Khirbet Yirza area of the Jordan Valley, in the northern occupied West Bank, to evacuate their homes on Monday for alleged military training in the area.

Activist Aref Daraghmeh said that Israeli military forces were heavily deployed in Khirbet Yirza.

Israeli forces evacuated the four families of their lands and farms claiming that military training would be conducted in the area.

Daraghmeh said that Israeli forces had demolished the families' properties several days ago, including water pipelines.

The Israeli authorities had delivered evacuation notices to the families last week.
