Israeli occupation forces and extremist Israeli settlers on Sunday prevented Palestinian farmers from accessing their lands in the village of Tuqu’, southeast of the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem, according to sources.

Tayseer Abu Mfarreh, mayor of the village, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that a large unit of Israeli military forces as well as a group of illegal colonial settlers, intercepted the farmers and banned their entrance onto their agricultural lands.

Also of note is that on Saturday, armed Israeli colonial settlers, stormed the Palestinian neighborhood of Wadi Alrababa in East Jerusalem, southern occupied West Bank.
