Israel to displace families from Wadi Abu Hindi, raze their homes 18/03/2011 - 10:30 AM NABLUS, (PIC)—The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Thursday handed more military demolition orders against the homes of six Palestinian Bedouin families living in Wadi Abu Hindi district, northeast of occupied Jerusalem under the pretext their presence in the area was illegal. Palestinian local sources said these Palestinian homes are located near Kedar settlement and will be demolished in order to complete the construction of the segregation wall and expand settlement outposts around Jerusalem. Entire families from the Bedouin clan of Sarai’ah will be displaced, especially since other families from the same clan had received eviction orders last month. The Bedouin Palestinian families in the Wadi Abu Hindi area are part of the wider Jahalin tribe, numbering some 2,700 people living in 31 areas of the desert. The Jahalin tribe is originally from the area of Tel Arad in the Naqab (Negev) desert, but Israel deported them in the early 1950s, so they moved to the Jerusalem area. In the 1990s, some 1,000 members of the Jahalin tribe were deported to the area of Jerusalem’s municipal garbage dump, in order to expand the settlement of Maale Adumim. In a separate incident, a Palestinian young man called Sami Sanbour from Yatma village in Nablus city was seriously wounded after he was attacked by savage Jewish settlers with knives and sharp tools on Thursday afternoon. The settlers were from Shilo settlement and stabbed the victim in different areas of his body. The young man was transferred to Ramallah hospital.
