An Israeli army force has set fire to farm lands belonging to farmers from the village of Tayasser, east of the West Bank city of Tubass, Tuesday at dawn.

The soldiers fired light bombs which landed on the fields that are used to herd sheep by the local farmers. Troops prevented the Palestinian fire brigades from stopping the fire, destroying the land, local sources reported.

Also an Israeli fighter jet fired light bombs near the city of Tubass, causing fire and crop damage, sources added.  Crops are the main source of income for residents in that area.
