Displacement Destruction and Appropriation
The Palestinian Villages of Latroun 40 Years After 1967

In the early hours of 6 June 1967, Israeli military forces entered the three Palestinian villages in what is known as the Latroun salient, namely ‘Imwas, Yalo and Beit Nouba. As the Jordanian army had already withdrawn from the area, the Israeli forces met with no resistance and immediately began to expel the residents from their homes. By 7 June 1967, the majority of the residents had fled and were on the long walk to Ramallah, where they would take temporary refuge. Unknown to them, however, the Israeli authorities had already started to implement their plan to raze the villages to the ground, and 40 years later the villagers would still be displaced.
