Violation: “additional opportunity to object to an order” notice

Location: Fasayil Al-Wusta area- Jericho

Date:  November 18, 2015

Perpetrators: Israel Civil Administration and army

Victims:  Ta’amra and Al-Zayid families


A massive force from the Israeli occupation army accompanied by a staff from the Civil Administration on November 18, 2015 raided the area of Fasayil Al-Wusta area, north Jericho and delivered two families “additional opportunity to object to an order” notices. The notices were served following a demolition order issued by the court of Beit El colony on October 2014.

According to the orders, the affected were given a one week deadline to object to the order. This step is an Israel tactic to give a sense of legality to what is already illegal, which is home demolition. The following table shows information about the affected and their properties:

About Fasayil AL-Wusta:

The area of Fasayil Al-Wusta is reported to repeatedly witness raids by Israel occupation army. Noteworthy, this Bedouin community is located nearby many Bedouin communities that are not recognized by the occupation.

Over the past five years, more than nine demolitions were carried out in the community, not mentioning that the whole community is notified of demolition.

The residents of Fasayil hail from Beersheba where they were displaced in 1948. The clans of Arab Al-Zayid , Aal-Kharbish and Aal I’bayyat headed to south Hebron then to the Palestinian Jordan Valley to face the terror and brutality of the occupation everywhere they went.

Life of Bedouin people is characterized by simplicity where people reside in tents and live off of livestock.
