Israel Demolishes An Entire Palestinian Village, Leaving 300 Displaced

13/01/2011 Israeli occupation forces’ bulldozers backed by several military vehicles demolished nearly the entire village of al-Dqayqa in the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil, leaving around 300 Palestinians homeless.

Odeh An-Najada, a local councilman for the village, said four bulldozers accompanied by 30 military vehicles entered the area and began destroying homes, Ma'an news agency reported on Thursday. "They demolished everything in the area, the whole thing, they left no building for people to live in," an-Najada said.

Parts of the village school were also destroyed, said Fawzi Abu Hlayyil, the director of the office of the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Education in Hebron, who denounced the demolition as an "ugly crime."

Israeli forces later dispersed Palestinians protesting the demolition of the village and detained four people.
