Brief narrative

For the second time this month, Occupation forces demolished tents belonging to five ‘Arab Jahalin families. Soldiers confiscated the remains of the tents and the families’ water tank to ensure that they will not be able to rebuild. On 16 February, at ten in the morning, jeeps and soldiers arrived again at the Jahalin community located east of al-‘Eizariya. Soldiers destroyed tents housing the families of Kayid Salem and his four married sons. For information and a map, please see: Stop the Wall
