Brief narrative

Source: Human Rights Watch On May 28, 2002, Israeli authorities demolished 52 homes in the unrecognized village of Al Araqib.191 Sheikh al-Turi told Human Rights Watch about the day of his home’s demolition: They confiscated all the contents of the house—even coffee, the children’s medicine, etc. They loaded it all on trucks and took it way. They have special trucks with a forklift and they even took bales of hay—about 150 bales, expensive ones. The cupboards, kitchen equipment, clothes, water, food—they put everything on the back of these trucks and didn’t bring it back. One big bag of flour costs 200 NIS and there are two bags in a container. They threw the flour out on the ground and took the containers away. We asked why they did that, and they said they wanted the containers.
