Violation:  eviction order on recently planted plot

Date: 13/02/2015

Location: al-Tayasir village/ Tubas

Perpetrators: Israel Nature Authority

Victims:  farmer Adnan Daraghmeh


The Israeli occupation authorities have  always been trying to take over the area of Palestinian Jordan Valley (al-ghoor) in all possible ways to guarantee a full control and to overlook Jordan; this is how Israel would cut the way on Palestinians from establishing "Palestine" with geographic borders and international corridors .

A massive force from the Israeli occupation army accompanied by the Nature Authority on February 13, 2015 raided  the area of a-Satih, east al-Tayasir village and handed farmer Adnan Daraghmeh out a military eviction order on his land within a deadline of 72 hours otherwise the occupation will ravage it and arrest the owner.

Israeli Nature Authority justified the this violation under the pretext of the lands being an Israeli natural reserve.  It should be marked that the lands are located within the natural block no.65 from the plot no.8; famer  Daraghmeh denied the Israeli claim and asserted that the lands are registered as Tabo with ownership documents.

It should be marked that Daraghmeh has a 37 dunum plot northeast al-Tayasir village; he, by 2015 fenced 9 dunums by planting 210 olive seedling s and other field crops.
