JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) razed 15 structures in the Basaliya Bedouin area in the northern Jordan Valley on Tuesday and ordered its inhabitants to leave the area.

Aref Daraghme, the chairman of the Wadi Al-Malih and Bedouin tribes municipality, said in a press release that the soldiers destroyed three rooms, which were built before 1967 Israeli occupation of the West Bank, and tin houses and sheep pens.

He said that dozens of people have been rendered homeless due to the ceaseless IOF demotion campaigns in Wadi Al-Malih valley.

Hundreds of houses and structures were razed in six hamlets inhabited by Bedouins in Wadi Al-Malih over the past two years.

Jewish settlers break into Aqsa plazas

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Jewish settlers broke into the Aqsa Mosque at an early hour on Wednesday morning to offer Talmudic rituals under heavy police protection.

The Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage (AFEH) said in a statement that around 30 settlers entered the holy site and toured its plazas as Israeli police forces facilitated their tour and restricted movement of Muslim worshipers and scholars.

It warned that the Aqsa Mosque was passing through a critical stage due to the Israeli occupation authority’s escalated targeting of the holy site as evident in the vigorous excavations under it and in its vicinity.

AFEH asked the Palestinian people and the Arab and Islamic world to stand united to resist occupation and foil its scheme against the Aqsa.
