Israeli soldiers abducted, Wednesday, three Palestinians and confiscated a tractor, while they were plowing their lands in the ar-Rakeez area, in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Fuad al-Amour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta and Southern Hebron Hills, said the soldiers invaded farmlands, before abducting Soleiman Mohammad, Maher Ahmad Mohammad, and Ibrahim Abu Arram.

He added that the soldiers also confiscated a tractor the Palestinians were using while plowing their lands.

“The soldiers have been escalating their violations against the Palestinians in Masafer Yatta, especially in the al-Mafqara and ar-Rakeez areas that are surrounded by many illegal colonies,” Al-Amour said, “The Palestinians are denied access to large swaths of their farmlands, especially since Israel wants to pave a new segregated road that would link between the various colonies in the area.”
