American Congresswoman Ilhan Omar criticised on Friday Israel’s demolition of 80 Palestinian homes in occupied West Bank.
“This a grave crime—in direct violation of international law,” Omar tweeted. “If they used any US equipment it also violates US law,” she added.
Omar commented on AP tweeting a report about the Israeli demolition of 80 Palestinian homes almost a complete village in Jordan Valley, West Bank.
“Israel's army has demolished the homes of nearly 80 Palestinian Bedouins in the occupied West Bank, officials and witnesses said Wednesday, in a rare operation targeting an entire community at once,” AP said.
The Congresswoman stated that “an entire community is now homeless and will likely experience lifelong trauma.”
She stressed: “The United States of America should not be bankrolling ethnic cleansing. Anywhere.”
