Israeli soldiers invaded, Sunday, a Palestinian land near the al-ā€˜Arroub refugee camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, uprooted dozens of trees, and demolished a chicken coop.

Local nonviolent activist, Mohammad Awad, said the soldiers, and employees of the so-called ā€œCivil Administration Office,ā€ the executive branch of Israelā€™s illegal occupation of the West Bank, invaded Abu Souda area, on the Hebron-Jerusalem road, right near the refugee camp.

He added that the soldiers then uprooted dozens of trees, and demolished a 600 square/meters chicken coop, owned by a Palestinian, identified as Khaled Mohammad Samaheen.

It is worth mentioning that, nearly three years ago, the soldiers demolish a chicken coup owned by the Palestinian in the same area, under the pretext that he ā€œhad no documents pricing ownership of the land.ā€

The attacked land and coop are in front Beit al-Bakara, meaning ā€œHouse of Blessingā€, builtĀ 70 years ago,Ā is a 38-dunam (9.5-acre) church compound located on the main road between Bethlehem and Hebron, opposite to Arroub refugee camp. It used to serve as a hospital providing free treatment to people suffering from tuberculosis until it was shut down in 1983. Jewish settlers later bought the compound from the church, through a fake company.
