Moreover, Israeli soldiers invaded, Thursday, the village of Kherbit Safa, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron, broke into and searched several homes, and took pictures of the families, and their ID cards.
In other news, The Civil Administration Office of the Israeli army, in the occupied West Bank, issued a decision to confiscate 1.23 Acres of Palestinian lands to expand a road section used by settlers of the illegal Adam settlements, east of Jerusalem.
Israeli sources said that the plan is meant for expanding road #437, near the Palestinian town of Hezma, and that the new section would “reduce traffic jams on the main road’ linking occupied Jerusalem with Israeli settlements in the central West Bank district of Ramallah.
In the Gaza strip, Israeli military vehicles carried out a limited invasion into the southern Gaza Strip, with soldiers opening fire towards Palestinian farmlands, and nearby homes, locals sources reported. Workers were forced to leave their fields, though no injuries were reported.
