Noteworthy, the owners were targeted four times in the recent 3 years, Oudeh Al-Ka’abneh (23 years) told LRC reporter:

“Early this year we moved to Aj-Jiftlik north Jericho in an area called Khallet Al-Foul after the occupation raided the area and demolished 3 barracks used in cattle breeding in May 2016. Also in October 2018 , demolished again the structures and barracks that we own.

It is important to mention, we tried through several legal aid institutions in coordination with Jericho and the Jordan Valley governor’s office to obtain a license , but the occupation refused despite the fact that we have legal documents prove that we own the land.

Early 2019 , we moved to Khirbet Al-Hadidiya  , and in may the occupation forces stormed the area and confiscated the tents and barracks that we owned in the pretext of living in a closed military zone, so we moved to an area that is about 1 km away, but the occupation showed up again and left us homeless under the heat of the sun , I am the supporter of a family of 4 , 2 of them are children one of them is one and a half years old , and the other is only two months old, while my father supports a family of 8, 5 of them are children.”

Residents of Khirbet Al-Hadidiya live with the least of life possibilities, and depend mainly on herding and agriculture for living , during the recent 5 years the community was targeted several times of demolition and destruction.

About Al-Hadidiya hamlet:
