Israeli soldiers, accompanied by many colonizers, uprooted more than 130 trees and bulldozed farmlands, Friday, in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
Local media activist Mohammad Awad said the soldiers uprooted more than 130 almond trees, in addition to bulldozing large areas of farmlands near the illegal Karmie Tzur colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.
He added that the bulldozed lands and trees are in an area of 5 Dunams, and are owned by the local families of Sa’id Ba’ran and Sabarna.
The bulldozing and uprooting of the lands aims at expanding the illegal colony at the expense of the privately-owned Palestinian lands.
The lands are isolated behind the fence of the illegal colony, and the families have been denied access to them; the families have all official deeds proving ownership
In occupied Jerusalem, the soldiers summoned for interrogation Yasser Darwish, a member of the Regional Council of Fateh movement, in addition to a Fateh official, Mansour Mahmoud, from the al-‘Isawiya town in the city.
It is worth mentioning that, two days ago, the two Palestinians were summoned and interrogated at the al-Maskobiyya interrogation and detention facility, in Jerusalem.
