Palestinians who live in the Jordan Valley, mainly nomadic Bedouins, rely heavily on agriculture and livestock husbandry as a main source of living, and frequent such demolitions by the Israeli occupation authorities have badly affected the population and forced many of them to even abandon the area and move to cities.

Israel frequently demolishes Palestinian homes and structures in the Jordan Valley area under the pretext of lack of permits.

Officials believe that the Israeli frequent demolitions in the Jordan Valley area aim at displacing Palestinians and seizing their lands to build new colonial settlements.

The Jordan Valley area is located in Area C, which represents more than 60 percent of the West Bank and is fully controlled by Israel.
