Israeli soldiers installed, Monday, two iron gates on agricultural roads leading to Palestinian farmlands in the al-Khader town, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Ahmad Salah, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in al-Khader, said the soldiers installed the iron gates at the entrance of in Khallet al-Fahim area, and Salman Lands area, without any cause or justification.

Salah told the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) that the Israeli violation would prevent the Palestinians from entering their lands, and added that the soldiers installed, a few days ago, several mobile homes in Khallet al-Fahim, in preparation for a new illegal colony on private Palestinian lands.

Al-Kader is subject to frequent assaults and violations by the military and illegal colonialist settlers, who constantly seek to build and expand their colonies and outposts on Palestinian lands.
