Director of the organization in the Middle East Joe Stork said in a statement that " Israeli army should stop his unexplained attempts to remove forcefully the community which existed for decades," adding that "Israeli forces didn’t treat diplomats roughly, demolished all buildings in the Makhoul and ordered residents to leave and never return. "
