Israeli soldiers and colonizers attacked, Thursday, many Palestinian farmers and prevented them from working on their lands, in the southwestern area of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The mayor of Deir Samir town, Shahin ar-Rayyan, said the colonizers, and soldiers, attacked the farmers in the at-Tabaqa area, southwest of Hebron, and prevented them from working on their lands.

He added that the colonizers prevented the Palestinians from bringing machines, including digging tools, while the Palestinians were working on their lands in the at-Tabaqa area, west of Doura town.

Shahin also said that the colonizers came from the Negohot illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands between Dier Samit and Beit Awwa towns and added that the colonizers repeatedly assault the farmers and try to deny them access to their lands.
