Israeli army bulldozers started on Monday morning to bulldoze farmlands, and barred school students from leaving their school in Al Khader
village south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Troops and army bulldozers stormed the village on Monday morning, around 10:00,  and started to bulldoze and uproot farmlands in the village to build a road and underground tunnel to separate the Palestinian used roads from the Jewish only roads, villagers reported.

In the afternoon, soldiers surrounded the local high school for boys, which is also located near the bulldozed farmlands, and barred them from leaving the school at the end of the school day.

Two hours later and after short negotiations and quarrel between the teachers and the soldiers, the students were allowed to leave the school, Bassam Ighnem, the headmaster of the school told IMEMC in a phone call.

Soldiers left the village around 3:00 PM leaving behind more than 60 Dunams of destroyed farm lands.
