Military Operation against town Six days war
Defenders Jordanian Army and at the outbreak of the war some Egyptian commandoes.
Israeli acts of terror Based on the orders of the Nobel prize winner, Yitzchak Rabin, armored jeeps broadcasted orders for the immediate eviction of the three villages of 'Imwas, Yalu, and Bayt Nuba to the East Bank. The terrorist, Yitzchak Rabin, gave the inhabitants only a few hours to gather their possessions, and got them on their way to Ramallah. To expedite the ethnic cleansing process, as in 1948 war, the Jewish Army shot over the heads of the fleeing villagers to make sure they would not come back. (see al-Masmiyya al-Kabira, Gaza for an eyewitness account of such terror practices). Soon after, the three villages were bulldozed and dynamited by the 'Jewish Army'. Based on eyewitness account, 12-15 villagers went back to their villages soon after its occupation, and they are still unaccounted for.
Refugees' migration route Like their predecessors, the refugees from al-Lydd and al-Ramla in 1948, the villagers fled towards the Ramallah area. Many slept in Ramallah's bus station for at least a week, until they were invited in by relatives in the area. A few of the refugees made it on foot across the bombed al-Lynbi bridge on the Jordan river to Amman, Jordan.
Exodus Cause Expulsion by Jewish troops
Village remains after destruction The village was completely obliterated and defaced by building on top of it the so called Canada Recreational Park. Please take the time to protest the building of such park on a looted land by registering your complain to your nearest Canadian Embassy.
