Local sources have reported that a number of extremist Israeli settlers burnt on Thursday at night [June 27 2013] a Palestinian agricultural structure in Bardala village, near Tubas in the West Bank’s northern Plains.

The sources added that Israeli soldiers, stationed at a nearby military roadblock, prevented Palestinian firefighters from crossing to extinguish the fire.

The burnt structure belong to a resident and local farmer identified as Fawwaz Sawafta.

Sawafta said that he recently built his farm in his own land, after Israeli soldiers demolished his farm, last month, destroying several hothouses.

Lawyer Yazan Sawafta, coordinator of The Independent Commission for Human Rights (ICHR) has reported that the structure was burnt to the ground, as the fire consumed the hothouses, agricultural equipment and machines.
