Bedouin families displaced by Israeli military near Ramallah

The tents demolished were a shelter for two families with a total of 15 members

Jerusalem24 – Israeli military forces today dismantled and confiscated tents for Palestinian families in a Bedouin community near the village of Taibe, to the northeast of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

Fares Kaabneh, a local activist, stated that a large Israeli army force raided the community, destroyed the tents and confiscated all of the belongings of the Bedouin families.

He said the tents demolished were a shelter for two families with a total of 15 members.

Kaabneh pointed out that this was not the first time Israeli occupation forces dismantled tents in the community. He noted that every time the army dismantled tents there, residents would once again erect their tents in the area.

He said the dismantling of the tents was part of a larger Israeli campaign aimed at emptying all of the Bedouin communities in the area in favor of the Israeli colonial settlement enterprise.
