Israeli forces bulldozed land belonging to Palestinians at the eastern entrance to the town of Deit Intham, north of Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank, said a local activist.

Saleh Tamimi, the coordinator of the Land Defense Committee, told WAFA correspondence that Israeli forces, accompanied by a number of heavy machines and bulldozers, stormed the town and proceeded to raze the land belonging to three local residents.

He said the measure is clearly intended to expand the settlement of Halamish, which has been growing in the area at the expense of Palestinian villages, ever since three Israeli settlers were killed in that settlement by a Palestinian attacker, in 2017.
