PA: Israeli forces demolish barns near Jericho

Jan. 16, 2013 7:46 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 17, 2013 4:23 P.M.)
JERICHO (Ma’an) – Israeli forces on Wednesday demolished several sheep barns and sheds in al-Zur and Deir Hajla east of Jericho, the governor of Jericho and the Jordan Valley said.

Majid al-Fityani said that the structures belonged to al-Jahalin Bedouin clan.

"With its systematic oppressive procedures targeting everything that is Palestine, Israel reflects the racist image of occupation," al-Fityani said.

"The occupying state claims democracy and human rights while it practices some of the ugliest violations of the Palestinian people's rights throwing aside all international conventions and covenants which guarantee that all peoples should live in dignity."

A spokesman for the Israeli army unit responsible for humanitarian affairs in the occupied territories did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment late Wednesday.
