Slow ethnic cleansing continues

Witnesses said six bulldozers
and hundreds of soldiers were deployed throughout the Jordan Valley village of Aqrava on Thursday morning, when two homes and road entrances were taken down by Israeli forces.

Sami Sadeq, head of the village council, said two streets leading out of the village were torn up, effectively rendering them useless for travel, forcing residents to take long detours and exit via the main entrance of the village.

Sadeq said some 95 percent of the structures in the village have demolition orders issued on them, including the village's grand mosque, kindergarten and homes.
