PPP denounces Israeli home demolition orders of five homes near Salfit

Oct. 31, 2008 9:03 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 31, 2008 9:03 P.M.)
Ramallah - The Palestine People's Party (PPP) denounced the latest Israeli decision to demolish five Palestinian homes in the town of Bruqin in the northern West Bank.

Senior PPP member Isam Baker called the decision "part of the ethnic cleansing policy that is carried out by the Israeli authorities in the Palestinian territories."

Baker explained that the residents of Burqin, which sits in the middle of the path of the Israeli separation wall, are fearful that their homes will be demolished. The proximity of the village to the planned route of the wall and the Khirbet Susa and Burkan Israeli settlements, in the Ari'el bloc, has lead to the demolition of dozens of homes in the town and the constant presence of the Israeli army.

He called for the human rights organizations to intervene immediately to stop these arbitrary decisions that are carried out under the pretext of unlicensed building. He warned of the consequences of implementing these decisions that will displace many families.

The settlements also pollute the town, dumping garbage and waste water into the area.

The PPP urged Islamic and national factions, the Palestinian president and Palestinian Legislative Council to intervene and save the homes.
