The facilities included three outhouses owned by farmers and a residential tent used by Jamal Mohammad Jahaleen, where he lives with his family.

In the early morning, the Israeli occupation forces demolished three Palestinian homes in two different areas of the Jordan Valley.

The demolition come under the pretext the buildings lacked the necessary planning licenses and other government documents.
