Israeli forces to displace 7 Bedouin families during Eid

Oct. 13, 2013 1:47 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 16, 2013 12:06 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces told seven families in the Tubas district village of al-Malih in the Northern West Bank that they would have to evacuate their homes on Monday, the first day of Eid al-Adha, a local official told Ma'an Sunday.

Israeli soldiers notified the families that the army would be conducting military drills in the area from 5 p.m. Monday to 3 p.m. Tuesday, al-Malih mayor Arif Daraghmeh said.

A spokesperson for the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories could not be reached for comment.

Daraghmeh said that the Israeli occupation had "spoiled the families' plans to celebrate Eid al-Adha," remarking that the families would be "homeless" on the first day of the holiday.

Eid al-Adha - literally, Feast of the Sacrifice - is one of the most important holidays on the Muslim calender. It is traditionally marked by slaughtering sheep and other animals, commemorating Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son in obedience to God's will.
