EIN AL HILWA | JORDAN VALLEY
When the Israeli authorities appeared at the Um al Jamal area of Ein al Hilwa (Jordan Valley) on 30 January 2014, they told residents to evacuate their homes as they were slated for demolition, said 43-year-old resident, Mahmoud Ka’abneh.
However, he added, little time was given to them to collect their belongings from inside the structures.
When the community rebuilt one structure, Israeli forces returned and destroyed it.
Mahmoud told us that the authorities kept monitoring the area to ensure that no one rebuilds.
