Valle del Giordano : distruzione case e rifugi per gli animali da parte dell’IDF

SABATO 26 GENNAIO 2013

Ahmad Sariya si trova di fronte alla sua casa demolita nel villaggio di Al-Mayta. Ahmad perso 4 delle sue dita della mano destra nel 2012 a causa di una sinistra dud dall’esercito israeliano nei campi accanto a casa sua.

Sintesi personale

Il 17 gennaio, l’esercito israeliano ha distrutto 55 case e rifugi per animali nella zona di Al Maleh. Questa operazione militare su larga scala è avvenuta contemporaneamente in  due villaggi emarginati situati nel nord della Valle del Giordano, vicino al checkpoint Tayasir. Dei 55 edifici demoliti, 23 sono case di famiglia: cinque in Hamamat Al-Maleh (lasciando 37 persone senza fissa dimora) e 18 in Al-Mayta (lasciando 150 persone senza fissa dimora). Inoltre, 33 altri edifici utilizzati per ricovero di animali delle comunità sono stati distrutti, così come alcuni serbatoi d’acqua. Due giorni dopo, il 19 gennaio, l’intero villaggio era stato dichiarato zona militare chiusa e l’esercito israeliano ha confiscato beni della comunità, compreso il cibo, biancheria da letto e tende che erano state fornite alle famiglie dalla Croce Rossa dopo le demolizioni. Tuttavia, gli abitanti sono rimasti e hanno dormito fuori nei campi, senza riparo. Sia Al-Maleh che Al-Mayta, come molti villaggi in Area C, hanno subito continue molestie da parte dell’esercito israeliano. Sono stati oggetto di ordini di demolizione ripetuti e solo due settimane fa sono stati costretti a lasciare le loro case per una notte, presumibilmente a causa di addestramento militare israeliano.

Ahmad Sariya stands in front of his demolished house in the village of Al-Mayta. In 2012, Ahmad lost four fingers from his right hand to unexploded ordinance left by the Israeli army in the fields next to his house.

On January 17, the Israeli army destroyed 55 homes and animal shelters in the Al Maleh area. This large scale military operation happened simultaneously in two separate locations: Hamamat al-Maleh, and further up the valley in Al-Mayta. Al-Maleh and Al-Mayta are two marginalized villages located in the north of the Jordan Valley, near the Tayasir checkpoint.

Of the 55 buildings demolished, 23 were family homes: five in Hamamat Al-Maleh (leaving 37 people homeless) and 18 in Al-Mayta (leaving 150 people homeless). In addition, 33 other buildings used to shelter the communities’ animals were destroyed, as well as some water tanks. Two days later, on January 19, the entire village had been declared a Closed Military Zone and the Israeli army confiscated the community’s possessions, including food, bedding and tents that had been provided to the families by the Red Cross after the demolitions. However, the residents stayed and slept out in the fields with no shelter.

Both Al-Maleh and Al-Mayta, like many villages in Area C, have suffered a continuous pattern of harassment by the Israeli army. They have been subject to repeated demolition orders and only two weeks ago were forced to leave their homes for one night, purportedly due to Israeli military training.
