JORDAN VALLEY, April 25, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli army bulldozers uprooted on Wednesday hundreds of olive trees and leveled land in the Jordan Valley village of Bardala, according to the village’s council member Darar Sawafta.
He told WAFA that three army bulldozers broke into the village in the early hours, uprooted trees and leveled land.
Reports said the land belonged to Hussein Abu Laban and that the army uprooted 280 olive trees planted four years ago.
The army closed several roads leading to the village and prevented non-residents from reaching it.
Bardala residents were informed on Tuesday of the army’s intention to raze their farming land.
