Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates announced on Monday that it held the United Nations Security Council fully responsible for consequences of keeping silence on ethnic cleansing Palestinian valleys.
In a statement, the Palestinian Authority foreign ministry condemned the comprehensive war carried out against Palestinians present in the Jordan Valley and said that Israeli occupation authorities intend to commit further mass deportation.
The wave of displacement affects over 300 Palestinian citizens who would be uprooted from their homes, in the villages of Ein al-Hilweh and Umm Jamal. Israeli authorities are basing the evictions of claims of Palestinians inhabiting 'unauthorized property', the statement added.
Israeli occupation forces also seized more than 550,000 meters of Palestinian land in occupied Jordan Valley and later allocated it to Zionist settlements and its facilities, the statement reported.
Furthermore, it added that the ministry considers that act as a crime of ethnic cleansing that flagrantly violated international law, international humanitarian law and Geneva Conventions.
