Israeli forces conduct military drills in Jordan Valley, destroy crops

Israeli occupation settlers uprooted about 100 olive saplings in an area east of the town of Yatta

Israeli occupation forces conducted on Tuesday military training in multiple areas in northern Jordan Valley, causing significant damage to Palestinian land, local activists reported.

Aref Daraghmeh, a human rights activist, said the Israeli occupation forces conducted military training in al-Farisiya, Sahl al-Burj and al-Maleh areas, destroying agricultural crops and lands planted with wheat.

The Israeli occupation forces usually conducts drills in the occupied West Bank, especially in the Jordan Valley, after forcefully displacing dozens of local Palestinian families due to the proximity of their homes to the training sites.

Palestinians living in these areas face the danger of unexploded ordnance left behind by the Israeli occupation forces after the military drills, which have led to the death of many Palestinians, including children, over the past years.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation settlers uprooted about 100 olive saplings in an area east of the town of Yatta located near the illegal colonial settlement of Avigal, another local activist said.

During the past seven days, Israeli occupation forces and settlers uprooted thousands of olive trees and saplings across the occupied West Bank.
