12 out of 18 houses to be demolished in Akaba


12 out of 18 houses to be demolished in Akaba village

www.gush-shalom.org

We got an alarming phonecall from Akaba village. Two and a half years ago its only health clinic was in danger of demolition - a demolition order had been issued. Then, Israeli and international protests helped divert the threat and the clinic is still there.

But the village is again threatened. This time, the peasant families received for 12 out of the 18 houses AND the Mosqe AND the Kindergarten demolition orders.

No problems of terrorism in Akaba; the hamlet doesn't pose any security threat whatsoever. Its only sin: that it is located in "C-area", that is: the area which Sharon wants to annex, and preferably empty.

Gush Shalom is again mobilizing its worldwide network - hoping to avert at least this disaster.
