> I am still here in Al Fara refugee camp (Sunday evening). Yesterday we
spent

> area irrigated by small channels flowing from a spring at the head of the
> valley, covered with lime and orange trees. It was so peaceful, you could
> forget completely about the whole conflict.
>
> Today we went to two nearby villages of Tubas and Akkaba where the army
> destroyed homes within the last week, to document the destruction and talk
> to families and neighbours.
>
> Still staying in the same house but no sign of army at camp so far. May
have
> to leave here in the next few days to go to Nablus again or to Bethlehem.
> We hope to be replaced by other internationals but the tradegy is that as
> soon as we go the army could come and destroy the home whether that is
> tommorrow or in a months time.
