Israeli forces bulldozed, on Wednesday, an agricultural road, in Zanuta village, southwest of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank, a local official reported.

The head of the Zanuta village council, Fayez al-Tal, said that an Israeli military bulldozer razed the agricultural road which Palestinians use to access their farmland.

Al-Tal added that approximately 1,500 meters of the road was levelled by the Israeli occupation, in order to expand the nearby colonial settlements of Shim’a and Tene, built on the expropriated lands of local Palestinians.

It is important to mention that all Israeli settlements are illegal as stated in Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

The Occupying Power [ISRAEL] shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies [PALESTINE].
