Israeli army destroy ICRC tents for Khirbet Makhoul villagers

On September 18, 2013: The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) brought tents to temporarily house the displaced families of Khirbet Makhoul in the Jordan Valley. Later, the Israeli army destroyed those tents. The Israeli military ordered the ICRC to leave the area and not to assist the community. The aid truck, which was loaded with more tents and other supplies, was therefore forced to leave. On Monday, September 16, 2013: residents of Khirbet Makhoul were woken up at 5:00 am to the sound of Israeli military bulldozers, escorted by Civil Administration teams, who started demolishing the houses in the area without prior warning.
