Over three days during the past week, the authorities demolished 22 dwellings in the Jordan Valley, along with 41 other structures used for storage and livestock, leaving 59 people, including 28 minors without a roof over their heads.

Yesterday, Thursday, 11 February 2016, Civil Administration and military forces destroyed 11 dwellings and 16 agricultural structures and livestock enclosures. The eleven dwellings and ten of the agricultural structures demolished were located in the Khallet Khader community, near the village of al-Farisiyah.
