In complete silence and blackout from the Arab Media as well international media, a group of Palestinian activists restored the old village of Ein Hiljeh on river Jordan for 6 days after being forced to leave it from 40 years ago.
What started as an occupation process or rather reclaiming process in Bab Shams was back once again in Ein Hiljeh

Unfortunately last Thursday the IDF managed to kick them from the village injuring some of them as well arresting and deporting the rest of them.

This is what I love about the Palestinian activists , never give up your fight. The Palestinian activists are persistent and I believe they will continue in their reclaiming their land and villages again and again.
Ein Hijleh village is back to be empty for now but I believe that its original people will return one day and stay there not for 6 days but for eternity.
|We will return one day|
