    Background: Israeli forces ordered Arab families out of three houses in the occupied West Bank in the early hours of Tuesday morning (1 July). The houses were then blown up. They had all belonged to the families of men accused of terrorist activities.

    SYNOPSIS: Two of the houses were in the town in Jenin. Both had housed families of five. A son of each family had been accused of planting a bomb of Haifa beach.

    One of the families included a elderly bed-ridden man. His wife and daughters said he was too ill to more; but the soldiers insisted that he must be brought out. Otherwise, they threatened to blow him up with the house. The families are indignant about collective punishments enforced against them even before the offender has been found guilty.

    Rooms in two other houses were blocked up and one in a refugee camp near Nablus was also destroyed.
