Israeli soldiers bulldozed on Wednesday, farmlands in Beit Doqqu village, north west of Jerusalem, in order to construct sections of the Separation Wall in the area. 

Sa’id Yaqeen, member of the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Jerusalem area, reported that soldiers barred the residents and landowners from reaching their orchards.

“Hundreds of Dunams were declared a closed military zone”, Yaqeen said, “The residents are not allowed to enter their lands, or even get close to them”. 

Also, soldiers threatened to shoot the farmers if they do not leave their lands, and attacked several residents while working in their orchards.

Yaqeen appealed the international community and humanitarian organizations to interfere and stop the Israeli policies of land grab and separation.
