JORDAN VALLEY, September 2, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday demolished a home and a shack and beat up five women, two of them pregnant in their last trimester, in Fasayel in the Jordan Valley, according to a local source.
Hamza Zbeidat, who runs a non-governmental organization in the Jordan Valley, told WAFA that forces stormed the area, surrounded the house and demanded its residents to evacuate it.
When the women refused to leave it, the force attacked them with rifle butts, fired tear gas and acoustic canisters toward the residents who formed a human shield to prevent the force from demolishing the home, causing three women to suffer from gas suffocation.
The women were transferred to hospital for treatment and were reported in stable condition.
The homeowner, Daifallah Rashaydeh, said that he has several orders by Israeli courts preventing the demolition of the house, which was built almost 10 years ago.
