Israeli soldiers bulldozed, Saturday, large areas of Palestinian land in the town of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem, occupied West Bank, in an apparent move meant to expand an illegal colonialist outpost.

Hasan Brejiyya, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in Bethlehem, told the WAFA Palestinian News Agency that the soldiers bulldozed the lands in Wad al-Ghaweet area, close to “Sidi Boaz” illegal Israeli colonialist outpost, built on privately-owned Palestinian lands.

Brejiyya added that the bulldozed and uprooted lands belong to several members of Sbeih family, one of them, identified as Ibrahim Salman Sbeih, who owned 15 Dunams in the attacked area.

On Friday, the soldiers invaded large areas of Palestinian agricultural lands and orchards, south of Bethlehem, and uprooted more than 15 Dunams.
