Israel/Occupied Palestinian Territories: Haj Sami Sadeq: human rights defender case sheet
Haj Sami Sadeq is a Palestinian community activist in Aqaba village in the Jordan Valley area of the Occupied West Bank. As head of the village council, he secured international funds and worked with villagers to build community structures, such as a medical centre. But, because the new buildings were built without permits from the Israeli military, they are at continued threat of demolition. Haj Sami Sadeq continues to face any challenges head on, energetically campaigning for his village and community.
