On Saturday, many paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded the Al-Minya countryside area, east of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and stole at least two tons of wheat.

Zayed Kawazba, the head of the Al-Minya Village Council, said the colonizers attacked many Palestinian farmers after harvesting their wheat on their lands in the Wadi Al-Abyad area near Tuqu’ town.

Kawazba added that the colonizers then stole at least two tons of wheat, owned by Saket Mousa Shalalda and his brothers.

The colonizers recently increased their violations in the same area, attacking villages and shepherds, and repeatedly preventing the Palestinians from entering their lands, stealing agricultural tools and uprooting lands.

Also, the colonizers attacked a young man in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the occupied West Bank’s southern part.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.

Also Saturday, several paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded Palestinian lands in Nahhalin town, west of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, and injured many Palestinians, including children.

On Saturday dawn, Israeli soldiers killed two young Palestinian men and wounded two others near the Salem military roadblock, west of Jenin in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.

Media sources said the soldiers killed Mustafa Sultan ‘Aabed, 22, from Kafr Dan, and Ahmad Mohammad Shawahna, 21, from Sielet Al-Harithiya, west of Jenin.
