The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, has affirmed that Israel is seeking to resolve the fate of the northern Jordan Valley by systematically expelling the native residents from their homes and gradually annexing their areas.
In a report published on its website on Friday, Haaretz said that the Israeli army displaced last week the residents of Khirbet Ibzik village from their homes and destroyed their property and cultivated fields during military drills.
In the past month alone, the residents of this little community were ordered to abandon their crude homes multiple times.
Aref Daraghmeh, a field researcher for the human rights organization B’Tselem, the Bedouin communities in the northern Jordan Valley had been ordered to evacuate their homes at least 100 times in the past five years, adding that the shortest eviction lasted five hours and the longest 24 hours.
Over the past three months, the Israeli army had destroyed several Bedouin communities in the northern Jordan Valley and dismantled many renewable energy and infrastructure projects financed by the European Union for the local residents there.
