Israeli bulldozers on Thursday demolished a Palestinian Bedouin village in the Jordan Valley for the fourth time in two weeks.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, local municipal councilor Aref Daraghma said Israeli troops had demolished homes recently rebuilt by activists in the village of Kherbet Makhol on claims that they lacked construction licenses.
Israeli bulldozers razed the village for the first time on September 16, leaving some 100 residents without shelter.
The homes were subsequently destroyed two more times by Israeli forces, which destroyed them again -- for the fourth time -- on Thursday.
A Palestinian official has described the home demolitions as a "war crime."
Israeli officials were not available for comment on the issue.
More than 10,000 Palestinians live in the Jordan Valley in makeshift homes and tents, since Israel restricts construction of cement and iron buildings in the area.
Animal husbandry and farming represent the main activities of valley residents.
There are currently 21 Israeli settlements in the Jordan Valley area, although Israel has announced plans to increase the area devoted to Jewish-only settlement building.
Israel sees the Jordan Valley as an economic and security buffer zone for Jewish settlements and wants to keep the region under its firm control in any future peace deal with the Palestinians.
Palestinians, for their part, want the Jordan Valley as part of their future state.

When Trump announced in early June he would withdraw from the Paris deal, "we knew that we could not expect discussions to be easy" at the G20 summit, Merkel told the German parliament.
In the first six months of this year, about 72,000 migrants landed on Europe's shores, around 12 times fewer than in the second half of 2015 when the crisis peaked, the Paris-based body said in its annual report on international migration.
Speaking to the German parliament a week before hosting a G20 summit, Merkel called global warming an "existential challenge" for humanity and said the 2015 Paris deal was "not negotiable".
