Army Destroys Khirbet Makhoul, Again

AL-MALEH, JORDAN VALLEY, October 3, 2013 (WAFA) – Two days after Palestinian and international activists were able to rebuild the Bedouin Khirbet Makhoul dwelling in the Northern Jordan Valley, the Israeli army returned early Thursday to destroy the tents, according to Aref Daraghme, head of al-Maleh village council.

He said an army unit arrived at the dwelling at around 2:30 in the morning, ordered the families to leave the shelters and proceeded to destroy the tents that were provided to the residents by international aid organizations to shelter them from the smoldering Jordan Valley weather.

This is the fifth time the army destroys the dwelling within the last month.
