Aref Daraghmeh, the mayor of al-Malih and al-Madarib villages, told Ma'an that Red Cross workers were still distributing tents to people when a large Israeli military force raided the site, knocked down tents and confiscated them.
Daraghmeh added that Israeli soldiers were “brutal and barbaric” in dealing with Palestinians, which led to clashes between soldiers and those who refused to abide to Israeli orders and stayed in their tents.
The Israeli army declared Khirbet Makhool a closed military zone and isolated it from nearby communities.
Daraghmeh added that evicting people was part of Israeli plans to empty the Jordan Valley and build settlements. He called on international rights organizations to intervene and stop human rights and international law violations.
