Israel demolishes 10 buildings near Jericho

Jan. 24, 2012 11:47 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 24, 2012 2:21 P.M.)
JERICHO (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished ten buildings in the Jordan Valley village al-Auja on Monday, residents told Ma'an.

The soldiers leveled new shops being constructed at the village's northern entrance, belonging to residents Diab Abdul Hamid, Nujom and Yasser Abdul Rahman, Muhammad Abdul Rahman and Fesal Hussein.

The owners told Ma'an the demolitions inflicted a serious loss on the Jericho-district village.

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees noted in a December report that demolitions across the West Bank doubled in 2011, displacing 990 people -- including 507 children.
