Al Hadidya, a bedouin camp in the Northern Jordan Valley close to the illegal Israeli settlement of Ro'i has had demolition orders on it since March 2007. Some people in Al Hadidya chose to leave when the miltary asked and move a few kilometres away.

The people who moved when the military told them to have now been told to move again - this time to Tammoun - a town in Area C outside the valley

Ahmad Abdallah Hafeth Bani Odeh, one of the people a Brighton-Tubas Solidarity Group volunteer stayed with in Hadidya, recently had his tractor and water container confiscated and was told that he wold not get them back until he moved into Area C - this was the villagers main source of water


The actions of the Israeli army in Al Hadidya are aimed at transfer of the Palestinian population out of the area. This is part of a wider policy of ethnic cleansing of the Jordan Valley


RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send appeals t the below addresses calling for the IDF to return Ahmad Abdallah Hafeth Bani Odeh's property and to cease their harrassment of the residents of Al Hadidya
