Israel increases forced West Bank evictions

Palestinians fear they will lose their homes as illegal settlements swallow the occupied territory.

The Israeli army has ordered hundreds of Palestinian villagers to leave their homes temporarily, so it can conduct military exercises.

Dozens of families living in Khirbet Tana, in the Jordan Valley, are in areas that Israel has labelled “closed military zones,” and have been forced of their lands temporarily.

Palestinians fear that the temporary eviction could become permanent as Israel continues expanding illegal settlement building in the occupied West Bank.
