On Sunday, illegal paramilitary colonizers invaded Palestinian lands in the Khallet Al-Ballouta area, south of Bethlehem, and cut grapevines.

Local farmer, Mohammad Salah Shahin, said the colonizers invaded his lands between the illegal Alon Shvut colony and the Givat Hahish outpost.

Shahin added that the colonizers cut over 180 grape trees and removed dozens of iron bars that were used to steady them.

It is worth mentioning that the colonizers escalated their assaults against the Palestinians in the area, especially in Khirbat Zakariyya, Khallet Al-Ballouta, Wad Shakhit, and Khallet Affana, by uprooting trees and farmlands and attacking homes.
