Israeli occupation forces on Monday demolished a number of residential facilities and tents belonging to 4 Palestinian families in the Al- Farsiya area in the northern Jordan Valley east of Tubas.

Head of Wadi Al-Maleh and Al Farsiya and local council, Aref Daraghmeh, said in a statement that the Israeli soldiers demolished Palestinian residential facilities for the second time in less than a month and left their local residents displaced.

The statement stressed that Israeli demolition policy aims at expanding illegal settlements construction in the area.
