Oxfam, an international British-based aid agency, called on Israel to compensate Palestinians for damage the IDF have inflicted, according to a Press TV report Sunday.

Oxfam issued a statement Saturday which criticized Israel for wasting money donated to Palestinians by international bodies and using it to destroy residential areas in a northern Jordan Valley village.

According to the statement the villagers of Al-Farisiya plunged deeper into poverty after Israeli army bulldozers destroyed 79 infrastructures in the area, Maan news agency reported.
