On Sunday, a number of illegal extremist Israeli colonialist settlers, accompanied by soldiers, invaded Palestinian lands in Khallet al-Nahla area near Khalayel al-Louz, southeast of Bethlehem, and bulldozed them.

Hasan Breijiyya, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and colonies in Bethlehem, said the colonists brought bulldozers into the area, and uprooted lands owned by members of Obeyyat family.

Breijiyya added that the colonists bulldozed the lands to establish a bypass road, in addition to rooms and hothouses on the Palestinian lands after illegal confiscating them.

It is worth mentioning that the area has been subject to frequent violations by the soldiers and the colonialist settlers.
