Ma’an reports:  “A Civil Administration bulldozer arrived, once more, at Khirbet Ein Karzaliyah in the central Jordan Valley, this morning. It began demolishing the tents put up by the residents since the latest demolition of 13 January, 2014″, B’Tselem said in a statement.
“A soldier escort to the bulldozer slashed the tent fabric so that the tents could not be re-erected.”
The bulldozer did not manage to destroy all of the tents, as some were located on a hillside. Israeli Civil Administration officials informed residents that they would soon return with a larger bulldozer to complete the demolitions.
On Jan. 8, Israeli authorities destroyed the entire village of Khirbet Ein Karzaliyah, leaving 25 people homeless, including 15 children.
