JORDAN VALLEY, May 3, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday destroyed the only road connecting the village of Khirbet Yarza, in the West Bank mountain ridges of the eastern slopes in the Jordan Valley, to Toubas completely isolating the village, according to a local official.
Head of Khirbet Yarza village council Mokhles Masa'ed told WAFA that two Israeli bulldozers under army protection destroyed the entire road.
Toubas governor Marwan Toubasi condemned the destruction of the road, which is considered the only way connecting the village to its surrounding areas, thus completely isolating it.
He said Israel continues to destroy areas in the Jordan Valley in violation of international and humanitarian laws and norms.
He stressed that the Palestinian Authority will rebuild the road for the second time as part of “its policy of supporting Palestinians to remain steadfast in their homes and on their land,” he said.
