URGENT: Appeal for international presence in the village of Al Aqaba

Two days ago, Israeli officials delivered five demolition orders to structures in Al Aqaba. One of the structures targeted is the home of the Jaber family, with ten children. Since the army has been demolishing homes in the nearby bedouin community of Al Maleh, and the village’s latest master plan was recently rejected, there is reason to believe Al Aqaba may be targeted in the next few days. There are three internationals in the village now, and a few more are on their way. If you want to visit Al Aqaba this weekend and lend your presence, please contact Haj Sami at 059-906-8808 or Gila at 054-747-4783.

Demolition order, saying that in 1/1/2000 they sent a building freeze order and to return the land to the way it was, and now the person in charge of the land has 3 days to re-apply for a permit from Bet El, if circumstances have changed.

  1. My heart goes out to you all! I’ve spoken about Al Aqaba every day since I left…people are ignorant of the reality facing Palestinians everyday…I have notified the Australian Consulate in Ramallah – they can’t say they didn’t know!
