Israeli soldiers bulldozed, Sunday, large areas of Palestinian lands in Kisan village, east of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers bulldozed the lands in Bir al-Mizrab area, in the southern part of the village.

Local nonviolent activist against the illegal Israeli colonies, Ahmad Ghazal, stated that the soldiers bulldozed 30 Dunams of agricultural lands owned by the local Abu Jalgheef family.

He added that the bulldozing and uprooting of the lands took place to expand a nearby Israeli colony, illegally built on stolen Palestinian lands.

Ahmad also said that the village has been subject to escalating Israeli violations by the soldiers and colonizers, including the illegal confiscation, and uprooting of agricultural lands, in addition to attacks targeting schoolchildren, farmers, and shepherds.
