On Friday evening, illegal Israeli colonizers burnt Palestinian lands in Husan village, west of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Rami Hamamra, the head of Husan Village Council, said the colonizers invaded the Qiddis area, surrounded and isolated by the illegal Bitar Illit colony, and burned dozens of olive trees.

Hamamra added that two young Palestinian men suffocated while trying to extinguish the fire before the medics rushed them to a hospital in Bethlehem.

The colonizers also tried to prevent the Palestinians from extinguishing the fire and assaulted some of them.

Notably, the colonizers have recently escalated their violations against the Palestinians and their lands in Husan, including burning and bulldozing lands and uprooting trees.

In related news, Israeli soldiers bulldozed farmlands and side roads near the Dotan military base, especially close to the main street between Jenin and Tulkarem in the northern West Bank.
