Several Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers invaded, on Tuesday, morning, ‘Anata town, northeast of annexed East Jerusalem, and demolished sheds, a farm, a car repair facility and several walls, in addition to closing agricultural roads.

The head of Anata Local Council Taha No’man told WAFA that Israeli soldiers demolished seven sheds belonging to Bedouin families in the town.

He further noted that the army also demolished a farm belonging to resident Ahmad al-Hilo, in addition to a car repair center belonging to Ashraf al-Julani.

The army imposed a strict siege on the entire area, after declaring it a closed military zone, and prevented the residents from entering or leaving it.

No’man added that the car repair facility was 230-250 meters in size, and that the soldiers demolished it without even allowing the owner to remove his machines.

The soldiers also closed several agricultural roads, especially in al-Fheidat and al-Boheira areas, in Anata, after installing sand hills to completely block any access to new construction sites in Anata.

In Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military continued its siege, and invasions of homes, for the twelfth consecutive day, and kidnapped at least six Palestinians, in addition to occupying rooftops and confiscating surveillance tapes.

Furthermore, the soldiers invaded the northern West Bank districts of Qalqilia, Nablus and Jenin, searched homes and kidnapped ten Palestinians.
