The Palestinian Jordan Valley (al-ghoor) is a witness on the most cruel occupation taking into consideration  that what has been happening in al-ghoor is a direct violation of human standards and a breach of all international and humanitarian conventions.

The Israeli army has been conducting a policy of holding military trainings on Palestinian lands since 2012 and until today. Noteworthy, these trainings taking place amidst of secure houses and fields are a breach of Geneva fourth convention, which stated the prohibition of terrorizing people at wartime. The occupation is here seen to violate every international law while pretending to be a state of law.
