They Came, They Razed, They Left: A Visit to a Destroyed Palestinian Village

The tiny village of Homsa was the latest victims of Israel's systematic policy of destruction of Palestinian homes in the Jordan Rift.

Israel is continuing to destroy systematically the villages of shepherds who live in the Jordan Rift. Last week, the Civil Administration demolished Homsa, another tiny Palestinian village. In January, 160 residents of the valley were made homeless; last year, twice as many were left homeless as in the year before.
