On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers invaded several archeological areas, including wells, in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, and threatened to abduct the Palestinians if they entered these areas.

Fuad al-Amour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, said the soldiers were accompanied by the Israel Antiquities Authority personnel when they invaded the Birin area.

He added that the soldiers threatened to abduct and imprison the Palestinians, especially the shepherds if they entered or approached the area.

The soldiers also took pictures of another well in the al-Jaza’ nearby area and threatened to abduct the Palestinians if they approached the area or entered it.

The army and the Antiquities Authority personnel also invaded many villages and Bedouin communities and informed them that they would be barred from entering the surrounding archeological sites.

Illegal Israeli colonizers, living on stolen Palestinian lands in direct violation of International Law, are allowed to enter these areas without restrictions.
