Israeli forces, on Monday, seized an agricultural shed placed on a land belonging to a Palestinian resident in the town of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem, in occupied West Bank, said Ahmad Salah, a local activist.
The activist told WAFA that Israeli forces stormed an area adjacent to the Israeli settlement of Eliezer, built illegally on Palestinian lands in al-Khader town, and disassembled a shed made from thin sheet metal sheathing, before confiscating it.
The shed belongs to one of the town residents who was identified as Yaseen Issa.
To be noted, Israeli forces previously demolished a grape trellis belonging to Issa.
Also on Monday, Israeli settlers removed an iron gate placed at the entrance of a farm land belonging to a Palestinian resident in the town of al-Khader, south of the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, said a local activist.
Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the Anti-Settlement Committee in the village, said that a group of settlers tied the gate to a car and pulled it down.
Settlers further attempted to attack the land owner, Khader Sbaih. However, the farmer managed to defend himself against their attack and to force them out of his land.
