Palestinian farmers said on Tuesday, that Israeli forces stormed the greenhouses they were working in, and forced them to leave, while a bulldozer started to close nearby agricultural roads with dirt mounds.

The roads, utilized by local Palestinian farmers, were connecting the Palestinian villages of Kafa and Shufa with a number of neighboring villages, southeast of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem.

Head of Shufa village council, Fuzat Droubi, told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that the closed roads, located near the illegal Israeli settlement of Avni Haifetz, built on Palestinian lands. He added that the goal is to seize more Palestinian lands, for illegal colonial settlements.
