Israeli armed settlers seize about 300 Palestinian dunums south of Bethlehem
Settlers seized about 300 dunams, south of the city of Bethlehem, and prevented their owners from approaching it at gunpoint.
The director of the Office of the Wall and Settlement Resistance Commission in Bethlehem, Hassan Barijiyah, reported that settlers planted vast areas estimated at about 300 dunums with forest trees in the Khallet an-Nahla area near the village of Wadi Rahal in the south, which is located between the “Efrat” settlement and the “Kivat Eitam” settlement outpost, which is located on Palestinian Citizens' lands.
Brijiyeh added that this arbitrary measure aims to expand the borders of the “Kivat Eitam” settlement outpost, stressing that the lands they seized belong to the private property of the citizens.
