The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates today condemned in the strongest terms the Israeli demolition of the homes of Humsa al-Fawqa community in the northern Jordan Valley for the fifth time in one year, considering it a war crime and a crime against humanity, and a step toward the annexation of the Jordan Valley of the occupied West Bank.
It also considered it as continuation of the Israeli annulment of the signed agreements.
The ministry denounced in a statement the international community’s silence to these crimes and violations, particularly those countries that talk about human rights and claim adherence to the two-state solution.
“Where are these countries that demand a halt to unilateral measures and call for giving the Israeli government a chance?” wondered the Foreign Ministry.
Israel today demolished a number of homes in Humsa al-Fawqa al-Bqai’a and seized the community’s belongings in order to transfer them to another location.
