The Israeli army started to bulldoze farm lands and uproot trees that belong to the residents of Wadi Rahal Village, south of he West Bank city of Bethlehem on Monday morning.

The lands are located between the village of Wadi Rahal and the nearby Jorit Al Sham'a, situated next to the illegal Israeli settlement of Efrat, originally built on lands annexed from the two villages.

Mustafa Hindi, a member of the local committee for lands defense from the village said this army action is part of the construction of the Wall in the southern part of the Bethlehem district, which is leading to more loss in farm lands and creating a new prison in the Bethlehem area.
