Israeli forces conduct military drills in northern Jordan Valley, destroy crops

JORDAN VALLEY, Tuesday, January 19, 2021 (WAFA) - Israeli forces conducted military training in multiple areas in the northern Jordan Valley, causing significant damage to Palestinian land, according to a local activist.

Aref Daraghmeh, a human rights activist, said Israeli army forces conducted military training in al-Farisiya, Sahl al-Burj, and al-Maleh areas, destroying agricultural crops and land planted with wheat.

The Israeli army usually conducts drills in the occupied West Bank, especially in the Jordan Valley, after forcefully displacing dozens of local Palestinian families due to the proximity of their homes to the training sites.

Palestinians living in these areas have to also worry about unexploded ordnance left behind by the Israeli army after the drills, which have led to the death of many Palestinians, including children, over the past years.
