On Monday, the 8th of February The Bedouin families of Khirbet Humsa, east of Tubas, had to watch as their tents and structures were demolished for the third time this year by Israeli troops. The families have been told to leave the area as it has been declared ‘a closed military zone’. Two days later an international delegation visited the demolished site. The delegation expressed its concern over Israel’s contravention of international law, which forbids the demolition of residential structures in occupied territories.
- Lord, we pray for the families of Khirbet Humsa, among them nearly fifty children, now facing homelessness during the winter and at a time of pandemic.
Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayers.
